The Raven continues to impress! This production of D.O.A.S is brilliant! Clever staging and a cast of talented, experienced actors emersed me in this drama and I was moved. A truly great performance! Don't miss this one!!

Willie Loman was amazing! The actor was able to switch between different time periods and states of mind in a flash. I enjoyed the small theater and intimate environment.

This was an engrossing evening of theater! The acting was superb. I was a little a confused by the director's decision to use the aisles and exits as well as the more-than-ample stage as places from which the characters conversed--found that a...continued

This was my first visit (Saturday, January 2) to The Raven Theatre and it far exceeded my expectations as a venue. "Death of a Salesman" was a well-acted and powerful story of a troubled man and family. I read the screenplay in college so when I...continued

Spencer (the star) was great. Biff was also wonderful. Other performances were a bit ragged (a lot of stumbled lines, and Ben was never credible at all). It might have been an off afternoon, but the central performance was compelling enough to...continued

Phenomally cast, staged and executed. The 4 of us had various levels of familiarity with the show but none was not significantly impressed and moved. Yes it's a downer but we still had fun at dinner and the Haunted Fear afterwards so don't avoid...continued

This always powerful and disturbing modern tragedy was worth seeing and, for the most part, well performed. The messages are poignant and timeless.

The Raven does great shows. This is the second we hae seen (also Hedda Gabler); they both have been quite good. The lead (Willy) was really good. On stage pretty much the whole time; showed a wide variety of emotions and energy levels; maybe he...continued

Impressive. Great acting/great play. Willie and Biff were amazing. The climax at the end between the two of them was theater at its best. I also love the Raven Theatre...not a bad seat in the house...comfortable seats. The free parking is a...continued

Extraordinarily well balanced production where every player holds their own unique contribution. Delivers a huge emotional impact, given even greater weight by the current corporate downsizing and culture-wars over the loss of personal...continued

Great performance. Even if you think you know this story, the development of the character of sons makes this a new and dynamic telling of this intense story.

Another great (though very sad, I cried during the performance) play and more outstanding acting at the Raven.

I thought this was an excellent production of a true masterpiece, one that still resonates 60 years after its debut. Despite being relatively intimate, the Raven has stellar production values including an impressive set and remarkable performances...continued
