On his role as Willy Loman in Arena Stage’s Death of a Salesman
Interviewed by Joel Markowitz
“It was a dream come true.” Rick Foucheux says of the opportunity to be in this production of Death of a Salesman and to walk in the shoes of Arthur Miller’s tragic embodiment of the American Dream. “The magic of theatre is that it holds a mirror up to ourselves … I approach each role as if I was in a brand new play.” How far does an actor go to create a fresh approach to a character? This consummate actor takes us on his journey.
Rick finds a surprising connection between his Tevye (Olney’s Fiddler on the Roof) and Willy, and gives us an actor’s appreciation of Arena Stage’s new Crystal City space.
A thoughtful and thought-provoking interview. Listen here.
