Death of a Salesman preview show was GREAT!

It was sad of course and I should have brought a couple tissues but truly a treasure of a play. I feel so lucky I got to see it and the preview show I saw last night is a memory that I will always remember. Philip Seymour Hoffman was so raw and honest and true. Linda Emond saying I can't cry Willy, made me cry. Loved it! Really did. I can see why Arthur Miller's work will live on through the ages. Also pretty young crowd tonight, a lot of people in upper 20s and 30s there and I suggest you see it for how the simple set relies on pure talent to creatively share the story of a broken down man and his hopes and failures and you will find yourself caring for him, laughing along at times, even crying from the art of language and emotion that will grab you with the first sound of the flute :) it was great to disconnect for a few hours and let in the world of Willy Loman and his boys.

P.s: Seeing a preview show is also a little bit cheaper way to see Broadway. And it says here that a limited number of $30 rush tickets will be available to theatre goers 30 years of age and under at every performance, beginning Feb. 14. Rush tickets will be sold in person at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre box office (243 West 47th Street) when it opens on the day of the performance. There will be a limit of two tickets per valid ID, subject to availability. The box office is open Monday-Saturday, 10 AM-8 PM.
