This production of Death of A Salesman actually originated at the Young Vic (which is where, amongst other things, the Ivo van Hove directed View from the Bridge also originated). It's a flexible performing space, seating around 400 mainly on one level. It's considered off-west end and ticket prices are usually fairly reasonable (I paid £30 for my ticket). It transferred with some of the cast to the much larger Piccadilly Theatre.

When it was first announced Marianne Elliott was the sole director, by the time it opened Elliott and Miranda Cromwell were joint directors, and now, for the NY iteration, Cromwell is sole director.

I had major reservations about it (though there were some plus points) and didn't expect it to cross the Atlantic - not least because I was rather looking forward to the planned Nathan Lane/Laurie Metcalf version (which I guess the combo of covid and Rudin put paid to).
