A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller
Please note, this event has expired.
One of the toughest and most powerful works from Arthur Miller.
Seen recently in New York in the Tony-award winning production by the Young Vic theatre, A View from the Bridge is one of Arthur Miller’s most powerful plays. The play focuses on Eddie Carbone, a longshoreman by trade, in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn during the 1950s. Eddie is confident of his place in the working-class neighborhood he calls home. That life changes when his wife’s cousins, illegally smuggled into the country, hide out in his home. When his niece Catherine falls in love with one of the cousins, the secrets, suspicions, and jealousies that haunt the family and the community erupt into tragedy. Miller’s powerful and passionate play is as relevant and as moving as ever.
TampaRep Artistic Director C. David Frankel has put together a stellar cast: Ned Averill-Snell (TampaRep’s The Iceman Cometh) and Emilia Sargent (Theatre Tampa Bay Awards winner, Outstanding Lead Actress, for TampaRep’s Grounded last season) as Eddie and Beatrice Carbone, along with Michael Mahoney (Theatre Tampa Bay Awards winner, Outstanding Lead Actor, for TampaRep’s The Iceman Cometh in 2016) as the local lawyer Alfieri. The large cast also features Hannah Anton, Nick Hoop, Nathan Jokela, Jeff Lukas, Nathen VanZile and Larry Corwin.
