Full cast recordings of two of Arthur Miller's greatest plays: Death of a Salesman and The Crucible Featuring Lee J. Cobb (Willy Loman), Mildred Dunnock (Linda Loman), Dustin Hoffman (Bernard) and Jerome Dempsey (Reverend Parris)
Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize winner, Death of a Salesman, which he describes as "the tragedy of a man who gave his life, or sold it" in pursuit of the American Dream, is as relevant today as it was fifty years ago. Directed by Ulu Grosbard and recorded in 1965, this recording includes an introduction read by Arthur Miller.
The Crucible, first produced in 1953, is Miller's most produced play, addressing mass hysteria, empty piety and collective evil. It is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving, but that compels listeners to gather their hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theater can. This production was recorded in 1972 and was directed by John Berry.
Arthur Miller was born in New York City in 1915. His first theatrical success occurred in 1947 with All My Sons, which earned him the Drama Critics Circle Award. In 1949, Death of a Salesman was given the Pulitzer Prize, the Drama Critics Circle Award and the Tony Award for Best Play. The Crucible won another Tony Award for Best Play four years later. His other plays include A View From the Bridge, After the Fall, Incident at Vichy, Broken Glass and Mr. Peters' Connections. In 2001, he received The National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters Award.Mr. Miller died on Feb. 10, 2005 at the age of 89.
