Audience Awed by ‘Death of a Salesman’

SCR’s 50th Season opened with the great American Classic Death of a Salesman, on an evening that began and ended with standing ovations.

The first ovation came during the curtain speeches, when Board President Damien Jordan, Managing Director Paula Tomei and Artistic Director Marc Masterson introduced the two men who started it all—Founding Artistic Directors David Emmes and Martin Benson.

After almost two minutes of cheering the theatre’s founders, the audience grew quiet as Death of a Salesman unfolded in a stunning production, directed by Masterson.  The drama’s final moment was greeted by another standing ovation.

And they were still cheering at the Cast Party on Ela’s Terrace, this time for the play’s artists and its Honorary Producers Sophie and Larry Cripe and Olivia and Alan Slutzky; and Corporate Honorary Producer U.S. Bank.
