Genre: Drama
by Arthur Miller, Conceived and Directed by Ruben Polendo

When you look in the mirror, are you the person you dreamt you would be? What happened, and is it too late? Can you accept failure, and move past it to new hope? These are the questions at the core of Theater MituÕs groundbreaking production of 'Death of a Salesman' by Arthur Miller. Exploring an American classic allows audiences to experience Mitu's hyper-theatrical vision and rigorously physical aesthetic realized upon what many think of as one of our 'most familiar' works--and, in so doing, see it anew. With a relentlessly physical style that seamlessly fuses vaudeville, Japanese Noh and Butoh, innovative object puppetry, original music, and conceptual design, this production breathes new contemporary relevence into Miller's iconic work. Come and find out why Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls Mitu's work "outside the boundaries of standard Western exciting, fresh theatre-going experience."
