It’s a treat to get to see Eddie Jones perform live, so I was very pleased to find out tonight that Eddie has returned to the stage to reprise his role of Willy Loman in the classic play Death of a Salesman. Back in 2002, Eddie had won the L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award for his role in this play. I know several fans went to see his performance back then and I wish I had been one of them.
Death of a Salesman has won much acclaim over the years. In 1949, it won a Tony Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It made history as the first play to win all three awards. The play continues to be produced around the world making Arthur Miller an internationally known playwright.
It’s currently playing for a limited engagement from October 26 to December 15 at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles. Opening night was Saturday, October 28. Performances are at 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays, and 2:00 p.m. on Sundays.
