Death of a Salesman listed as one of the top 10 dramatic plays of all time is a very difficult play to watch as well as being an extremely demanding role for the lead actors to play. Glen Fleshler had to step in to the lead role of Willy Loman when James Black had to back out for health reasons. If you are going to the theatre for light entertainment, this is not the play for you. But if you love great acting and good drama this play is perfect. Mr. Fleshler did an outstanding job in his role as Willy Loman. The other performers did a superb job as well. I must say that I have never heard such silence following a play as I experienced with this play. I was truly disappointed with the audience in not recognizing the performers more as it took a long time for them to get to their feet to applaud the actors and actresses for their outstanding jobs. I can only conclude that it was the subject matter of the play itself being so depressing that it was hard to cheer afterwards. However, I felt that these actors could perform on the biggest stages in the world and be proud of their perfomances. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to see great acting and a great dramatic play but don't expect to come away happy. It generates a lot of thought and conversation one you get past the hurt.
