Death of a Salesman Opens May 9 at Le Petit Theatre

 For immediate release

Death of a Salesman Opens May 9 at Le Petit Theatre

Arthur Miller's  classic  Death of a Salesman, the first Pulitzer Prize-winning script to be produced by Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carré in recent memory, takes the stage on May 9 for eleven performances.

Le Petit's board of governors is committed to producing a Pulitzer prize-winning script each season as part of the community theatre's commitment to theatre education.   Death of a Salesman has been considered an American classic since it was first performed in 1949.

Directed by Amy Holtcamp, local actor George Sanchez stars as Willy Loman, a traveling salesman who struggles to achieve the American Dream in a story that weaves together complex issues of family and success. It is a thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that is widely regarded as one of the greatest American plays ever written.  

Other lead cast members include Mary Pauley as Linda Loman, Garrett Prejean as Biff Loman, Chris Marroy as Happy Loman, Ron Gural as Ben Loman and Casey Groves as Charlie.

"I've been struck by how much I relate to Willy Loman," Holtcamp stated.  "It's a play about a man who looks around and realizes that all of those dreams he's had for the future might not come true. The future is here and none of it has materialized. It's also shocking how relevant  the play is to a modern audience. I think after the most recent economic collapse, we are all wondering if the American Dream is still a reality."


Ticket prices range from $30 - $50 and may be purchased online at http://www.lepetittheatre.com/ or by visiting or calling the theatre's box office at 504-522-2081 between 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.  The Wednesday, May 21 performance features discounted ticket prices of $10 - $20.
