    This is clearly the apex of American Dramatic Theater. Even though this is reportedly the “abridged” version, it is powerful and touching. All the performances are top notch but towering above all is Lee J. Cobb as Willy Loman. Perhaps he has played the role so many times that the words seem like second thought, not scripted words from a play. The sadness where he laments that the days of looking forward to something are gone, that is such a powerful sentiment that it stays with you. When you watch this performance, it should give a person a new insight to their family relations. It is that good and if you never watch any other drama, watch this one.
