Zeiterion Theater’s Death of a Salesman Review

by Butch McCarthy

I rarely save a ticket stub. Let’s see: Yaz Day at Fenway (Carl’s retirement celebration in 1983), Paul McCartney at Schaefer Stadium (2nd row), Bruce Springsteen Boston Garden (1978 Badlands Tour)- that’s about it.

But I’m saving my Z ticket from last night’s performance of “Death of a Salesman”.  Christopher Lloyd was magnificent as Willy Loman supported by an incredible cast, notably Markus Potter as his son, Biff, and Amy Von Nostrand as his wife, Linda Loman.

Death of a Saleman Christopher LloydA sell-out crowded witnessed this beautiful rendition of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece.  You could hear a pin drop- nary a cough or any movement as we sat mesmerized by this tragic tale.  I teared up a little in the final act when Willy and Biff finally reconcile- Lloyd was incredible with his tentative hug.  I was stunned at the end of the play when I realized that three and half hours had elapsed.

Please, Zeiterion decision-makers: More of this brand of entertainment!

Personal note: We had an awesome pizza at a packed Brick Pizzeria on Union St. before the show- The Funghi: wood fired mushrooms, roasted garlic, asiago.
