AKRON, OH—The Footlight Dinner Theater's weekend production of Death Of A Salesman featured partially rewritten dialogue apparently intended to highlight the restaurant's $11.99 chicken dinner special, sources reported Wednesday. "He's liked, but he's not well liked.

The last time the Footlight altered a legendary theatrical work to advertise a food item was in October 2006, when manager Harold Childress rewrote the lyrics to a song from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel and changed its title to "What's The Use Of Wond'rin'? (Just Get The Lasagna)."
