“...An intensely absorbing drama, sure of itself every step of the way."—New York Times
Considered one of the great American classics, Arthur Miller’s passionate drama A View From the Bridge, like his Death of a Salesman, examines the promises and failures of the American Dream.
An award-winning play about Italian-American 1950s immigrant life, it’s the retold story of Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone—a man who holds family and honor above all else—yet betrays them both.
Locked in a fading marriage, Eddie becomes increasingly infatuated with his nubile niece he’s raising as a daughter. When she falls for one of her illegally immigrated cousins, whom Eddie has invited to stay in the family home, their lives are set on a tragic course.
Staged in a raw, stripped-down style by director Jared Sakren (West Side Story, Gypsy), the production leaves the riveting words of Miller to speak for themselves.
