Zach Grenier (TV’s “The Good Wife”) stars as Willy Loman, the most famous traveling salesman in history, in Arthur Miller’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-willing play.  When Willy is downsized by his young boss, he caves under the strain of not being able to make ends meet.  Lyrical and intense, the action shifts between memories of Willy’s glory days and his crumbling relationship with sons Biff and Happy.  This theatrical masterpiece about aging, economics, and the American Dream retains all its relevance and power.
