Yale Rep brings Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece to its stage for the first time in a brand new production featuring Charles S. Dutton as Willy Loman and directed by Artistic Director James Bundy.
“An air of the dream clings to the place,” Miller wrote describing the Loman family house—a house one mortgage payment away from finally being paid off. For Willy Loman, there is only one dream: the American Dream. After 36 years on the road in its pursuit, the traveling salesman, haunted by missed opportunities and an uncertain future, must come to terms with a lifetime of self-deception that has distorted his dream into an American tragedy.
Three-time Emmy Award winner and two-time Tony Award nominee Charles S. Dutton, who appeared in Yale Rep's world premieres of August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and Joe Turner's Come and Gone, returns to Yale Rep in a role that has captured the American imagination for six decades.
