KC Repertory "Death of a Salesman" review by Frank Siraguso

Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is a play about identity – personal, family and professional. Willy, played for keeps by Gary Neal Johnson, is losing his grip on reality. He can't make his 30-odd years on the road as a salesman add up. Throughout the play, Willy constantly asks, what's the secret? He means the secret of success. Willy also constantly rebukes himself for not following Ben, his older brother, to Alaska for certain success. (Turns out Ben actually went to Africa and found a diamond mine. Either way, he was still rich.)
