Young Vic’s ‘Death of a Salesman‘ to transfer to the West End

“I don’t say he’s a great man…but he’s a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He’s not to be allowed to fall in his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must finally be paid to such a person.”

  Following a sold-out run at the Young Vic theatre, the smash hit, critically acclaimed production of Arthur Miller‘s iconic ‘Death of a Salesman‘ transfers to the West End’s Piccadilly Theatre for 10 weeks only. 

  Following her recent award-winning successes with ‘Company‘ and ‘Angels in America‘, Marianne Elliott co-directs the production alongside Miranda Cromwell, who worked as Associate Director on both shows. Together, they bring a unique vision to one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century, seen through the eyes of an African-American family. 

  Making his West End stage debut as Willy Loman, Wendell Pierce will reprise his role at the Piccadilly Theatre, and will be joined by current onstage wife, the Olivier Award-winning Sharon D. Clarke, as Linda Loman. Full casting for the West End transfer is to be announced.

  The production features design by Anna Fleischle, lighting by Aideen Malone, sound by Carolyn Downing and musical direction by Femi Temowo

  Presented by Elliott Harper Productions and Cindy Tolan,’Death of a Salesman’ will run at the Piccadilly Theatre from 24th October 2019 to 4th January 2020, with an official opening night on 4th November.

  Tickets go on general sale from Tuesday 11th June, with 200 tickets available at £15 for each performance.

  The initial sold-out run, which also stars Arinzé Kene and Martins Imhangbe continues at the Young Vic until 13th July. 

  “Fresh, compassionate and ultimately devastating” (Evening Standard), “this superb production is a revelation” (Financial Times), “brilliantly re-imagined. Powered by a phenomenal cast. Stunning” (Time Out). 

  “A vital, truthful and vivid production and the latest surefire hit from this remarkable team” (WhatsOnStage), “this masterpiece resonates and devastates afresh” (Daily Telegraph). “A fresh revival of an old great” (The Times).
