Attention must be paid. And the experimental company 600 Highwaymen 
makes paying it pretty easy with this innovative riff on Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. As part of the River to River Festival, Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone restage this classic American tragedy (which packs plenty of Recession-era resonance) in a vacant storefront near the South Street Seaport. On a set composed solely of folding chairs, directors Browde and Silverstein intercut Miller’s midcentury dialogue with dance and 
choral music, streamlining the script until it runs a mere 100 minutes. The production features a 17-person cast, ranging from second-graders to septuagenarians, several of whom play the distressed and depressed Willy Loman.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: July 10. Continues through July 13, 2013
