Actress Shazahn Padamsee at the Premiere of ‘Death Of A Salesman’
Last evening, Mumbai’s theater aficionados witnessed a spectacular premiere of Arthur Miller’s Death Of A Salesman by Raëll Padamsee’s Ace Productions.
Veteran theater star, Alyque Padamsee, marvelously executed the immensely challenging dual role of directing the play as well as playing the main protagonist. He was superbly complimented by his co-star Sabira Merchant and two new young actors Neel Tolani and Jim Sarbh, both of whom were outstanding.
