Death of a Salesman

September 22 - October 22, 2017

One of the greatest works in the theatrical canon, Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is an excoriating​ critique of the American Dream. The winner of seven Tony Awards and the Pultizer Prize upon its 1949 Broadway debut, this powerful work takes place over the course of a single day, and centers on the character of Willy Loman, an ageing travelling salesman who battles against his growing insignificance by escaping into a world of fantasy.

Jefferson's Garden

February 19 - 11, 2018

First premiering in the UK in 2015, this sweeping epic tragedy finally heads to the USA in 2018. Written by Timberlake Wertenbaker, this historical drama follows two vastly different characters during the era of Independence, as their paths collide with each other, as well as with famous historical figures. Bravely arguing that America's historic mistake was due to Jefferson's failure to protect the concept of universal freedom for everyone, this timely drama will raise questions and eyebrows at the Ford Theatre next spring.

Despite its worldwide notoriety for being the venue where President Lincoln met the assassin's bullet on April 14, 1865, Ford's Theatre remains to this day a prime venue for Broadway theater productions in the D.C area, as well as an important historical place of interest. After years as a disused warehouse, it was reopened as a theater in 1968, and then renovated fully during the Noughties, reopening in 2009 to mark the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth. Historical guided tours of the theater and accompanying museum are also offered.
