a broadway Transfer
After a sell-out run and a five-star critical reception at London's Young Vic, the Marianne Elliot and Miranda Cromwell helmed production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman will make a hotly anticipated Broadway transfer! Original stars of the Young Vic production, Wendell Pierce and Olivier Award winner Sharon D. Clarke, will reprise their triumphant roles when The Death of the Salesman lands on Broadway.
A play that explores the binding grip of the 'American Dream', Death Of a Salesman won the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony for Best Play in 1949 and solidified Arthur Miller as one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century.
Star of Suits, The Wire, and Selma, Wendell Pierce makes his West End debut as Willy Loman with Oliver award-winner Sharon D. Clarke starring as Linda Loman. With the award-winning prowess of Marianne Elliott (Company, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, Angels In America) and the talented Miranda Cromwell at the helm of this latest rendition, Death Of A Salesmen is transported to new and breath-taking heights.
