Robert Falls has won a Tony for his direction of Death of a Salesman. Falls first mounted Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman at Chicago's Goodman Theatre, where he is artistic director. The show -- which stars Brian Dennehy as Willy Loman -- received such good reviews that producers decided to bring it to Broadway, where it is now enjoying wide acclaim and an open run.
Before taking the reigns at the Goodman, Falls was for many years the artistic director of Chicago's now defunct Wisdom Bridge Theatre. There, he directed a notoriously avant garde production of Hamlet, starring Aidan Quinn. At the Goodman, his typically massive undertakings have included Galileo, The Speed of Darkness, On the Open Road, The Iceman Cometh and A Touch of a Poet.
In New York, Falls has piloted a variety of productions of various sizes, including revivals of Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo and The Night of the Iguana and premieres of Nicky Silver's The Food Chain and Eric Bogosian's subUrbia.
