It's hard to ruin Arthur Miller's devastating portrait of fallen American dreamer Willy Loman. But it's harder still to craft a production as riveting as Michael Menendian's. Chuck Spencer's strong, subtle performance sets the pace. His Loman is a man seething with pent-up anger and guilt as he flashes between delusion and insight (and the accompanying disappointment). JoAnn Montemurro matches Spencer's grace and power as Willy's long-suffering wife, and so do Jason Huysman and Greg Caldwell as his two sons, Biff and Happy. This is one of those productions where every element--Andrei Onegin's beautiful set, Amy Lee's evocative lighting, Leif Olsen's original score--contributes to a flawless whole. --Jack Helbig
