Broadway's latest electric revival of Arthur Miller's classic comes to the Goodman. Masterminded by celebrated Belgian director Ivo van Hove, this A View from the Bridge is staged on a bare, black stage, which ratchets up the piece's claustrophobia and draws stunningly intense performances from its cast. It's a masterful story of jealousy, pride, and sexual longing utterly reinvented.
This production originated in London, before crossing the Atlantic for an acclaimed Broadway run, where it garnered the two Tony Awards, for Best Revival of a Play and Best Director.
WHAT IS A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE ABOUT?
Eddie Carbone eeks out an existence by working the docks in 1950's Brooklyn, where he lives with his wife Beatrice and her young niece Catherine. Now a teenager, Catherine is blossoming into womanhood, eliciting a sexual longing in Eddie which he does his best to repress. His inner turmoil is forced to the surface by the arrival of two illegal Italian immigrants into the house, one of whom catches Catherine's eye, driving Eddie to try and assert his dominance.
