Broadway Death of a Salesman star Wendell Pierce celebrated a birthday December 8, and his Broadway family was on hand for a special onstage celebration. After taking a Broadway bow, Pierce's cast mates presented him with a cake topped with the Death of a Salesman Playbill. Don't worry, costume crew; Pierce didn't start cutting slices until he was backstage and out of costume.
Miranda Cromwell directs this current revival, which follows a traveling salesman and his family who are caught up in the madness of the all-too-often unreachable "American Dream." The work debuted on Broadway in 1949 and won six Tony Awards for its premiere run.
The production continues at the Hudson Theatre through January 15, 2023.
