McKinley Belcher III will play Happy in Death of a Salesman. The Mercy Street and Show Me a Hero actor recently made his Broadway debut in A Soldier's Play.
"I couldn't be more thrilled to step into the continuum to tell the story of this great American play, and through the eyes and hearts of a Loman family that looks like me," said Belcher III.
"I'm in awe of the talent in the room, from Wendell, Sharon, André and my brother Khris. It's an honor to be back on Broadway unpacking the meaning of family and our ever-elusive American Dream."
The Death of a Salesman cast includes Wendell Pierce as Willy Loman, Sharon D. Clarke a Linda Loman, Khris Davis as Biff and André De Shields as Ben.
Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman centres around Willy Loman, a travelling salesman who reflects on his life decisions. The Pulitzer-winning play was revived in London in 2019, winning two Oliviers for Sharon D Clarke for Best Actress and Marianne Elliott and Miranda Cromwell for Best Actor.
