What the critics had to say…..
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, “As fine a rendering of the play as one could hope for…Brian Dennehy plays Willy superbly.”
ALASTAIR MACAULAY for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, “Dennehy…is very fine in projecting Willy Loman’s mental fixations, his energy and his sporadic charm. By the end of the play he has overdone certain actorly devices, but it’s still a riveting performance….Clare Higgins is simple, spontaneous and heart-catching.”
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, It is a memorable performance [Brian Dennehy] that builds slowly but achieves extraordinary highs…..”What a remarkable play it is....”
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, “Magnificent production…there is not a moment when one isn’t moved, gripped, and at times appalled by the sheer raging pain on stage. Not a performance rings false, not a word seems superfluous to requirements. You leave the theatre in no doubt that you have witnessed a great, possibly THE great, American tragedy.”
PETER HEPPLE for THE STAGE says, “Falls and his production team, including designer Mark Wendland, are certainly due their share of the success of this outstanding version of Arthur Miller’s great play.”
