Here's an insiders tip on a great Broadway play you may want to see this season. It is an Arthur Miller play called A View from the Bridge, a play which just opened at New York City's Cort Theater a few days ago. After reading some reviews and finding out that the day after the official opening of A View from the Bridge, that the show took in over $500,000.00 at the box office, it seems obvious that the shows two lead stars could very well be the reason.
A View from the Bridge tickets are already becoming a "hard to get" ticket on Broadway. The play takes place in the 1950's, telling the unique story of Eddie Carbone, a married Brooklyn longshoreman and his fascination with his 17-year old orphaned niece Catherine. Eddie and Catherine are played by big screen stars Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson. Unfortunately for Eddie, apparently Catherine falls for one of Eddie's newly arrived immigrant relatives from Italy. Eddie's jealously gets the best of him and his rage follows him wherever he goes affecting his family and his entire life.
A View from the Bridge has had several revivals on Broadway since Mr. Miller wrote this terrific play in 1956. This show appears to be able to stand the test of time and the shows creative team manage to give the audience the feel that they are really in 1950's Brooklyn, nearby the Brooklyn piers. Direction is by Gregory Mosher who was last seen on Broadway 18 years ago in the revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. Helping to recreate the Brooklyn surroundings are set designer John Lee Beatty and lighting designer Peter Kaczorowski with costume design by Jane Greenwood.
A View from the Bridge tickets are on sale now through April 4, 2010. It's not likely the show will extend its run past this date as Ms. Johansson has a film commitment right after that. The show plays daily and takes Monday's as its day off.
