Death of a Salesman Gets Digitized At Cockroach Theater
Death of a Salesman Gets Digitized At Cockroach Theater

AIR DATE: May 2, 2013

Cockroach Theatre concludes its season this year by reviving a classic. Unlike the company's more modern and experimental productions, this time they take on "Death of A Salesman." It's an oldie, but director Troy Heard has put his own distinctive, digital stamp on the play, so it's not your grandfather's Arthur Miller.

Elia Kazan directed the original Broadway production of Arthur Miller's 'Death of a Salesman.' The men were best friends until Kazan testified against his fellow artists during the McCarthy Hearings.

Actor Lee J. Cobb played Willy Loman in the first 'Salesman' on Broadway in 1949, and Dustin Hoffman played the role in 1984 at the Broadhurst Theater and in a 1985 television special. This photo shows the actors in 1965 and was taken by Inge Morath, Arthur Miller's second wife.
