Instagram Takeover: "Death of a Salesman"

Observing what our cast and crew post about each show is one of the most exciting parts of managing Ford’s social media. It feels like I’m sneaking inside the rehearsal hall and backstage.

We created the Ford’s Theatre Instagram account as an all-artist platform so that theatre fans can experience that feeling, too! Here are some of our favorite posts from our cast, artists, crew and fans this September, as we present Death of a Salesman on our historic stage. 

Thomas Keegan (Biff) shared how one costar spends time backstage…

Nora Achrati (who plays Waiter) shouts-out the women behind the scenes who help #FordsSalesman run smoothly…

 Mackabee shares a peek at some very narrow on-stage stairs you can’t see from the audience…
