Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Suits, Selma) makes his West End stage debut as Willy Loman, with Olivier Award-winning Sharon D. Clarke as Linda Loman.

Following a sold out run at the Young Vic theatre, the smash hit, critically acclaimed production of Death of a Salesman transfers to the Piccadilly Theatre for 10 weeks only.

"I don't say he's a great man…but he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He's not to be allowed to fall in his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must finally be paid to such a person."

Following her recent award-winning successes on Company and Angels in America, Marianne Elliott co-directs Death of a Salesman with Miranda Cromwell, who worked as Associate Director on both shows. Together, they bring a unique vision to one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century, seen through the eyes of an African-American family.

I am not really a huge fan of the spoken word play, preferring musicals; but this was amazing.

saw the play on the penultimate night - by which time the actors were perhaps jaded. the one exception being the magnificent sharon d clarke. the actor playing willy loman mainly barked his lines out angrily and, apart from the scene with howard, achieved little pathos. i have no words to describe the inaudibility and lack of competence of the actor playing biff. apart from the music the scene in the restaurant was excruciating. it was a very old-fashioned production. having black actors did add an extra dimension to the social comment of the play but not enough to make up for an underwhelming production of a great play

Badly directed, boring play made more boring by boring set - why did I go? Felt assured it would be good, some actor friends said it was great, but ... Some performers were great of course, the lead, but patchy otherwise, too shouty. Yes disappointing.

A riveting performance by Wendell Pierce, clinging to his dreams to the bitter end with the energy of anger and desperation. Profoundly moving. All the actors were brilliant; the staging minimal and yet full of meaning and metaphor: domestic appliances and furniture hanging on threads from the ceiling, as is the protagonist's life.
