Trivia

In his autobiography "Timebends", Arthur Miller speculates that his unconscious mind picked the name "Loman" for Willy Loman, the protagonist of his play "Death of a Salesman", based on his conscious experience of being thrilled by The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933), which featured a character named "Inspector Lohmann".

Good Adaptation of the Best Modern Drama
9 September 2003 | by (Malltown) – See all my reviews

I think over time this play will only become greater in its importance. This is an excellent adaptation/performance, Dennehy and Franz are magnificent, in fact the entire cast except for......Ted Koch as Happy. He is awful! I can't believe how much so. He is supposed to be an oily "philandering bum", yet Koch garbles and gruffs out his lines so that he comes across as an actor playing Popeye trying to act like Robin Williams. It sorta ruins the whole thing, as Haps character is so darn critical to the entire story. I will never be able to get past the Lee. J. Cobb performance anyway, but this is very very good. If you saw Dustin Hoffman back in the 80s almost ruin this play, you will be pleased at this revivial.
