TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: NTC Stages Arthur Miller Classic, “Death of a Salesman” Feb 1-18

Jan 12, 2018
The Novato Theater Company continues its entertaining and provocative 2017- 2018 season with the Arthur Miller classic, "Death of a Salesman," one of the greatest plays in American Theatre. The NTC production is directed by Carl Jordan and produced by Candace Brown and Nick Moore. "Death of a Salesman" runs February 1-18 at the NTC Playhouse (5420 Nave Drive) in Novato.

"Death of a Salesman" chronicles the last days in the life of Willy Loman, a man who has spent more than three decades in sales and now, in his early sixties, finds his numbers—and his mind—slipping. Biff, his 34-year-old son, is out of work and running out of options. Happy, two years younger, compulsively exaggerates his own accomplishments. Willy’s devoted wife, Linda, supports him unconditionally, but her constant encouragement cannot keep him moored to reality. Willy is literally haunted by the past, and visions of happier days and lost opportunities continually intrude as he struggles to make sense of the present moment. At heart, this is the story of the members of this American family’s love for each other, and Willy’s corrosive love for the American Dream.

Directed by Carl Jordan, this production offers an impressive cast that includes Joe Winkler (Willy), Madeleine Ashe (Linda), Chris Ginesi (Biff), Neil Thollander (Happy), Richard Kerrigan (Charlie), Alan Weber (Ben), Michael Remak (Howard), Al Christenson (Stanley), and Matt Farrell (Bernard).

"Death of a Salesman" received the 1949 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play. The play premiered on Broadway in February 1949, running for 742 performances, and has been revived on Broadway four times,[1] winning three Tony Awards for Best Revival. Death of a Salesman has been numbered on the short list of finest American plays in the 20th century alongside Long Day's Journey into Night and A Streetcar Named Desire.

Tickets ($12 - $32) and information can be found at www.foothill.edu/theatre or by phone at (650) 949-7360.
