I saw a performance of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman last weekend. I went because I have friends in it, and because I saw the auditions (it was a dual audition with Turn of the Screw) and wanted to see how the actors – and their characters – would grow from there.
The show was fantastic. The best moment came at the end – the curtain call – when the titular character’s actor stepped out. I’d somehow forgotten that there was a real live person behind the character.
That was amazing. Just wanted to share.
