The Young Vic's 2019 West End production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman will transfer to Broadway during the 2022–2023 season with dates and a theatre to be announced.

Broadway and West End Caroline, Or Change star Sharon D Clarke will reprise her Olivier-winning performance as Linda Loman, alongside Wendell Pierce reprising his Olivier-nominated Willy Loman. Joining the production for the Broadway transfer are Hadestown Tony winner André De Shields as Ben and Khris Davis (Sweat) as Biff.

Miranda Cromwell will helm the revival after co-directing the West End run with Marianne Elliott, currently represented on Broadway with Company. The pair jointly won an Olivier Award for their work on this Salesman in 2020. Elliott remains as a producer on the revival through her production company Elliott & Harper Productions, which will co-produce with Cindy Tolan and Kwame Kwei-Armah.

“Looking at Death of a Salesman from the perspective of a Black family living in a predominantly White capitalist world changes the way that you hear this text,” says Cromwell in a statement. “Wendell and Sharon illuminate the heart of this play in a new way that is both universal and entirely specific.”

“I have always been fascinated by the Loman family’s wrestle with assimilation, and the cost of that struggle on one’s mental health, on your family and on your community,” adds Kwei-Armah. “This production breathes new life into a show that people think they know.”

Further casting and creative team are to be announced.

The work was last seen on Broadway in a 2012 revival starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Linda Emond, Andrew Garfield, Finn Wittrock, and John Glover.
