Quotes & Highlights

“The finest off-Broadway style theatre west of the Hudson.” —Talkin’ Broadway


Both an indictment of a materialistic society and a probing view of family relationships, the play has been lauded for its mining of the links between individual lives and public events, and between present and past experience.

At the center of this timeless story is Willie Loman (Keith Phillips). Who, while adhering to the illusive American ideal puts unrelenting pressure on his sons, Biff (Carl Miller) and Happy (Timothy Meehan), to achieve at all costs, never realizing that neither he nor they can ever live up to these illusions. The sons’ struggle to win their father’s love as well as to forge their own independent lives, and their mother, Linda Loman’s (Margel Kaufman) attempts to mediate this battle, is a universal story that continues to move audiences world-wide.

Cast also features Hal Savage as Ben, John Krause as Charley, Todd O’Connor as Bernard, Lisa Lennox as The Woman, Alan Kaiser as Howard, Louis Almaraz as Stanley, Jessica Coghill as Miss Forsythe, Phaedra Starr as Letta and Monica Chavez as Jenny.  Set Design by Christian Phillips, Lighting Design by Rachel Klyce, Sound by Kenneth Vandenberg and Costumes by James Baldock.

Directed by Christian Phillips and Marcella Pethes.
