With its 1949 Broadway opening, Death of a Salesman struck a chord with audiences, and each generation since has embraced the play as an expression of their own struggle to achieve the American dream. In this Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero in Willy Loman—the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine. Death of a Salesman compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, within the unstable walls of a suburban American home.
