Stage, TV and screen actor Christopher Lloyd will star as Willy Loman in the Weston (Vt.) Playhouse production of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" at Werner Centennial Center at Westminster School in Simsbury Tuesday Oct. 12 at 7 p.m.
A limited amount of tickets will go on sale only on the web next week at a tiome to be announced. See www.westonplayhouse.org.
Though Lloyd is best known for his roles in TV's "Taxi" and in the "Back to the Future" films, he memorably played Oberon in the mid-'70s in the legendary production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the Yale Repertory Theatre (which also featured Meryl Streep who was in the Yale School of Drama at the time). He was featured again with Streep in "The Possessed" at the Rep.
Lloyd just finished a run of "Salesman" staged by Steve Stettler, artistic director of the Weston theater, and will now do a short tour in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut running through Oct. 17.
Also in the cast are Amy Van Nostrand as Linda, Philip Kerr as Uncle Ben, Markus Potter as Biff, Nathan Darrow as Happy, Munson Hicks as Charley, David Bonanno as Howard/Stanley, Matt R. Harrington as Bernard, Brandy Zarle as The Woman, Elizabeth Morton as Jenny/Letta and Beth Hylton as Miss Forsythe.
