WILLY LOMAN 2.0

600 highwaymen 
take on Arthur Miller

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
