Showtime celebrates ‘Death’

Thesps eyeing L.A. 'Bash'

NEW YORK — Broadway’s “Death of a Salesman” revival marked its 300th and final performance Nov. 19 with a taping for Showtime. Minutes after the curtain came down on Arthur Miller’s drama, invited theatergoers including newsmen Bryant Gumbel and Mike Wallace walked from the Eugene O’Neill Theater to the Palm, where guests of the cable network broke into spontaneous applause when Brian Dennehy entered.

Ron Eldard, who played Biff, brought guest Paul Rudd. The two said they were off to L.A. in the morning to begin rehearsals for Neil LaBute’s play “Bash,” with Calista Flockhart.

“We’re hoping to land an episode of ‘Ally McBeal,’ ” Rudd said. Apparently their legit fees are commensurate with the weekends-only performance sked of the play. “That’s why we need to do ‘Ally McBeal,’ ” Eldard said.
