Death of a Salesman
by Arthur Miller
Directed by Lane Savadove
EgoPo revives Miller's iconic play in honor of the great American playwright's 100th birthday - as well as his Jewish roots.
EgoPo launched our American Giants Festival Season with Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman." Audiences ventured to a diverse working-class neighborhood in 1940's Brooklyn, into the home of the Loman family, to attend Willy's Shiva. Artistic Director, Lane Savadove paid tribute to Miller's working class background and Jewish roots in this tragic tale of a fractured family and a man whose American dream does not match his American reality.
Featuring: Ed Swidey, Mary Lee Bednarek, Sean Lally, Kevin Chick, Steve Wright, Derrick L. Millard II, Russ Widdall, Anna Zaida Szapiro, Kaitlin Kemp, Jonas Parker, and Miranda Shandell.

"..this Death of a Salesman radically exceeds typical productions, and asserts EgoPo’s inspiring resistance to treating classics like museum pieces." -Philadelphia City Paper
"EgoPo’s production deserves to be seen by anyone interested in canonical drama – and how it can be reinvigorated in production. And I’m personally grateful for the opportunity to question my own preconceptions aboutDeath of a Salesman."
