Performances begin July 14 for Theater Mitu’s Off-Broadway staging of Death of a Salesman at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The hyper-theatrical staging, which features the use of masks and inanimate objects to represent characters, is scheduled to play through July 23 only.
Theater Mitu’s staging of the Arthur Miller classic explores a landscape of unrealized hopes and asks what happens when you are written out of the American Dream.
Directed by Rubén Polendo, Death of a Salesman features a cast made up of Justin Nestor, Kayla Asbell, Corey Sullivan, Denis Butkus, and Attilio Rigotti. The original score is performed by Ada Westfall.
The production features original music by Ellen Reid in collaboration with Ada Westfall, set design by Kate Ashton and Polendo with collaboration by Leighton Mitchell, costume design by Candida K. Nichols, lighting design by Kate Ashton, sound design by Alex Hawthorn, mask design by Lori Petermann, and object design by Scott Spahr and Sanaz Ghajar. Chris Mills is the dramaturg on the production, Scott Spahr is the associate director, and Jimmy Walden is producer.
Performances are in the BAM Fisher Fishman Space. For tickets and more information visit BAM.org.
