Nancy Linehan Charles—-best known for the indomitable women she has portrayed in such Pacific Resident Theatre productions as “The Visit” and “Mrs. Warren’s Profession”—-might seem miscast as the supportive wife who lets Willy bark at her uninterrupted. But the steel she
projects brings new respect to Linda Loman, who, after all, has held
the household together despite Willy’s self-delusion.
Jack Klugman plays the title role in the Falcon Theatre’s staging of
Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman”, with Nancy Linehan Charles as his wife.
