most acting was good -- characters seemed very natural and did a good job of conveying the emotional heaviness of the play. The intimacy of a very small theater also added to the intensity. I recommend dinner outside at the Beehive!

Description

It’s a classic play for a classy night out. The story revolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.

Approximate run time: 2 hours, 25 minutes; including one intermission.

About the Ticket Supplier: Independent Theatre Company

It all began with a disagreement on how theatre should be run. A.J. MacQuarrie and Matt Marini, two actively involved members of a local theatre company, realized they could do it better. They wanted to create a new company that is professional, skilled, open-minded, and has a supportive team. These ambitious young men decided to venture out on their own, birthing Independent Theatre Company. Nobody thought they could do it, but they are.
