Panel to Address ‘Death of a Salesman’ as Writing and Performance
This year's common text read and experience by the first-year Learning Communities in Duquesne University's McAnulty College took the shape of Death of a Salesman, the Red Masquers' debut production in the Genesius Theater.
Instead of a traditional lecture about the reading, this year's focal event on Thursday, Nov. 12, at 4:30 p.m. will be a free panel discussion, Page to the Stage: Two Roads, One Text. The event is open to the public.
John Lane, associate professor of theater arts and director of Duquesne's theater arts program, will lead the panel discussing the play in Duquesne's Power Center Ballroom composed of cast and crew members. Besides Lane, participants will include Mark Yochum, Nathaniel Yost, Jay Keenan, Tim Colbert, Colleen Garrison, Dale Hess, Nancy Love and Justin Sines.
Death of a Salesman, written by Arthur Miller, won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and numerous Tony Awards for Broadway performances.
