Richard Scott’s blustering volcano of a Willy prowls the stage, vacillating between self-confidence and self-doubt. Fossen’s direction manages pace and emotion with admirable ease.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
The Grand Theatre’s production of Death of a Salesman is in its final week. The production of the famous Arthur Miller play, which concludes its run on March 23, has received rave reviews—called ‘timely,’ ‘provocative,’ and ‘not to be missed.’
Mark Fossen—who ‘creates an iconic stage picture’—directs a cast that was ‘Spot-on,’ ‘completely believable,’ and even stole a reviewer’s heart. Richard Scott’s ‘blustering volcano of a Willy prowls the stage, vacillating between self-confidence and self-doubt,’ and was singled out for special praise.
Jocelyn Gibbons in Utahtheatrebolggers.com wrote, “Taking on such a mighty script is no small task, but the Grand Theatre proved up to the challenge.” Barbara Bannon’s review in the Salt Lake Tribune cites the production’s ‘powerful, fully realized creations of these characters.’ Jennifer Mustoe of FrontRowReviewersUtah.com tipped her hat to Fossen who, “Obviously got into the mind of Miller when he brought such depth to such a difficult, painful piece.”
The show plays Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Theatre, located at 1575 S State Street in Salt Lake City.
