Whistle While You Hurt
Whatever happened to good ol' cheerful propaganda? You know, like in the '30s when the world was in the shit, and theater gave us dancing gold diggers happily singing, "We're in the money." Sure, it was whistling past a graveyard, but that's better than staring into the graveyard. We say this not to knock Dallas Theater Center's first-ever production of Arthur Miller's American theater classic Death of a Salesman. It doubtless will be a fine rendition of the play about the desperate end of salesman Willy Loman, the ultimate economic victim. But damn, DTC, we're whistling as hard as we can here. Directed by Amanda Dehnert and starring Jeffrey DeMunn, the play runs Saturday through May 22 at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, 2400 Flora St. For show times and tickets, call 214-880-0202 or visit dallastheatercenter.org.
