Tonight on L.A. Theatre Works, Stacy Keach and Jane Kaczmarek star in Death of a Salesman, the 1949 masterpiece by Arthur Miller, a searing portrait of the physical, emotional, and psychological costs of the American dream. Willy Loman (Keach) is the play’s iconic traveling salesman, whose family is torn apart by his desperate obsession with greatness and social acceptance. As his two sons cast about aimlessly for their station in life, Willy begins to come unraveled when the reality of his life threatens his long-cherished illusions.
This is an L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Stacy Keach as Willy Loman, Jane Kaczmarek as Linda Loman, Steven Culp as Biff Loman, Maureen Flannigan as Letta and Jenny, Jason Henning as Bernard and Stanley, Kathryn Meisle as The Woman, Tim Monsion as Uncle Ben, Sam Mcmurray as Charley, John Sloan as Happy Loman, Kate Steele as Miss Forsythe, and Kenneth Alan Williams as Howard.
