BENNINGTON — A Bennington College faculty member, Scott Lehrer, has earned his fourth Tony Award nomination in five years for his sound design of the Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “Death of a Salesman.”
Lehrer won the first Tony award ever given for best sound design in 2008 for his work on the musical “South Pacific.” He was nominated the following year for Joe Turner’s “Come and Gone” and in 2010 for “A View From the Bridge.”
The version of “Death of a Salesman” for which Lehrer was nominated starred Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Willy Loman. Hoffman has been a visiting artist at Bennington College and is, according to the college, a “friend of the Bennington Writing Seminars.”
The play was nominated for six other Tony Awards, including “Best Revival of a Play.”
The 66th annual Tony Awards are scheduled for June 10.
