Dates and Theatre Announced for DEATH OF A SALESMAN Broadway Revival
More details are beginning to shape up the fall 2022 Broadway season. The previously announced West End transfer of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman will begin previews September 19 at the Hudson Theatre.
Wendell Pierce and Sharon D Clarke reprise their roles as Willy and Linda Loman in a revival, spotlighting Miller’s work from the perspective of a Black family for the first time on Broadway. Pierce scored an Olivier nomination for his performance while Clarke won the Olivier, back-to-back with her star turn in Caroline, or Change; she is currently nominated for a Tony Award after appearing in the Broadway transfer at Studio 54 earlier this year.
The production will also feature Hadestown Tony winner André De Shields as Ben and Khris Davis (Sweat) as Biff. Death of a Salesman is directed by Miranda Cromwell, who co-directed the London production alongside Marianne Elliott. Together, they won the 2020 Olivier Award for Best Direction. An opening night, along with additional cast members and a creative team, will be announced later.
The play is produced by Cindy Tolan, Elliott & Harper Productions, and Kwame Kwei-Armah. The Tony-winning play originally premiered on Broadway in 1949, directed by Elia Kazan and won six Tonys that year. It was also honored with the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, going on to be performed in four Broadway revivals, the most recent being in 2012.
Currently running at the Hudson Theatre is the revival of Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite, starring real-life married Broadway couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. Elsewhere on the Main Stem, new shows planned for the upcoming 2022-2023 season include the New York City Center transfer of Into the Woods, the stage adaptation of The Kite Runner, the Victoria Clark star vehicle Kimberly Akimbo, and a revival of August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson.
