Attention must be paid: The production of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman'' starring Christopher Lloyd will be performed on Oct. 4 at Roxbury Latin School.
The school seems an unlikely venue for Lloyd, who won an Emmy for his role as the spacey Reverend Jim in "Taxi'' and co-starred with Michael J. Fox in "Back to the Future,'' where he played Dr. Emmett Brown, an eccentric inventor who found a way to make a DeLorean sports car travel through time.
But Cathy Marsh, the director of community services at the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company in Weston, Vermont, under whose auspices Lloyd has been playing Willy Loman in "Salesman'' since late August, confirmed yesterday that the Boston school will be the site of a performance that will be open to the public.
Marsh had no details on how Roxbury Latin was chosen as the venue, and she said that Steve Stettler, a producing director of the playhouse and the director of "Death of a Salesman,'' was traveling yesterday and could not be reached. A spokesperson for Roxbury Latin could not be immediately reached for comment, but in a press release the school noted that it will be the site of "the only Boston stop'' on the New England tour of "Salesman'' tour.
