Death of a Salesman opens at Bingen Theatre on April 13

Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association (CGOA) Stages presents Arthur Miller’s Tony Award winning play, “Death of a Salesman,” a tragedy of an American family, at the Bingen Theater on April 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22 at 7:30 p.m., and on April 23 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 adults and $10 students, and are available at the door or at gorgeorchestra.org.

Director Deborah Langlois said that the play is timeless. It not only embodies the loss of the American Dream, and love of a family, its inherent message holds universal truths. Miller once stated in an interview that “the salesman is close to being the universal occupation of contemporary society — not only in America, but everywhere. Everybody is selling and everything is for sale.”
