The Man Who Had All the Luck, Miller's intriguing 1944 Broadway flop came before both his breakout hit, All My Sons, and the towering Death of a Salesman. Miller wrote the play in 1940. It takes place in 1938 during the end of the Depression, and as Europe was heading into war. Scott Ellis directs the Roundabout Theatre revival, which stars film's Chris O'Donnell and Samantha Mathis.
