The impossible dream
Willy Loman, who has dreamed of success his whole life, is the iconic hero of Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony award winning play Death of a Salesman. The 1949 play is the story of every man’s search for the American Dream—and how difficult it is to find it. Ed Claudio (pictured) last played the role in an abbreviated run 15 years ago. The actor says it’s his favorite play and that performing in it again has been on his bucket list for years. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday; $18-$20.
