STREAMING FREE ON-DEMAND

Streaming October 21 - 25, 2020 Only!

In an unprecedented collaboration with Showtime and The Actors Fund, Goodman Theatre is proud to present the FREE stream of the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, starring Brian Dennehy and directed by Goodman Artistic Director Robert Falls.

Captured on film in 2000 for Showtime and not aired since its original release, this landmark production features the Broadway cast. Donations are encouraged to the Actors Fund, supporting theater artists during this difficult time across the country.

The New York Times hailed Dennehy's Loman as "played with majestic, unnerving transparency" and lauded Falls' "powerhouse staging". Winner of four Tony Awards in 1999, including Best Revival of a Play, Best Actor in a Play (Brian Dennehy), Best Featured Actress in a Play (Elizabeth Franz) and Best Direction of a Play (Robert Falls), the stream will be made available on this page and Playbill.com starting at 7pm CDT on October 21 through 11:59pm CDT on October 25 only.
