Shruti Gupta Can Totally Deal

By J. Stephen Brantley | Directed by James Glossman

Perhaps the play that most embodies the notion, true or false, of The American Dream, our production of this masterpiece will be reset in the late 1950s and feature an African-American Loman family, living and working in a white world. The text will remain wholly faithful to the original, but by recasting this seminal work through another lens, we hope to enable audiences to access the work in a different way. For while class in America has arguably become more fluid, when race is factored into the equation, it still remains an issue of intransigence.
