The full cast and design team is set for the Ford's Theatre's upcoming production of Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Death of a Salesman, which will play the Washington, D.C. venue September 22–October 22.
Directed by Stephen Rayne, the cast will be led by Craig Wallace as Willy Loman and Kimberly Schraf as Linda, with Danny Gavigan as Happy and Thomas Keegan as Biff.
They will be joined by Nora Achrati (Waiter), Aakhu TuahNera Freeman (Jenny), Jennifer Gerdts (The Woman), Joe Mallon (Stanley), Brandon McCoy (Bernard), Lynette Rathnam (Letta), KenYatta Rogers (Howard Wagner), Michael Russotto (Charley), Frederick Strother (Uncle Ben), Kathryn Tkel (Miss Forsythe), and JaBen Early (understudy).
“With Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller wanted to write a play that transcended time and place and was universal in its appeal,” said director Rayne in a statement. “In the 70 years since the play opened, Willy Loman’s fervent emphasis on the importance of being ‘well liked’ and our compulsion to measure someone’s worth by the size of their paycheck seems to have become more pronounced in American culture. I look forward to exploring this play about the American Dream with Craig Wallace and our wonderful cast.”
The production will also feature scenic design by Tim Mackabee, costume design by Wade Laboissonniere, lighting design by Pat Collins, and sound design and original music by John Gromada. The dialect and voice director is Lynn Watson. The production team also includes production stage manager Brandon Prendergast and assistant stage manager Julia Singer.
