The six-month run will be at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End.
The cast will include three other actors from the original Goodman Theatre and Broadway productions—Allen Hamilton as Uncle Ben, Steve Pickering as Howard, and Howard Witt, who received a Tony nomination for his performance as Charley. The production will also feature British actors Clare Higgins, winner of the 2003 Olivier Award for Best Actress, as Linda Loman, and Douglas Henshall and Mark Bazely as Biff and Happy Loman.
Since meeting success with Salesman, producer David Richenthal, Falls and Dennehy have returned to Broadway with Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night. Dennehy and Richenthal again received Tonys for their work, while Falls was nominated.
Recently, Falls and Dennehy reteamed for a production of O'Neill's one-act Hughie at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago.
Initial talks about a London stay first began in as the Broadway show approached its Nov. 7, 1999, closing date. The talk had been that Dennehy and Franz would star in a 12-week London run of Salesman, at the Old Vic, beginning in January 2000, but a plan did not materialize.
