A View from the Bridge

Liev Schreiber, one of our finest stage actors, and Scarlett Johansson, one of our newest (she won a Tony award for her Broadway debut), were a galvanizing pair in this Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's 1955 tragedy about a Brooklyn longshoreman who develops an unhealthy obsession with his niece. Gregory Mosher's no-nonsense production allowed the human tragedy to unfold naturally and made a good case for A View from the Bridge as one of Miller's strongest plays.
