“More than anything, I was nervous that if I was absolutely panned [in A View From the Bridge reviews], I wouldn’t have the opportunity to try the stage again and I would have hated that. I was also concerned that people weren’t going to be able to hear anything I was saying, but I learned that I have a little bit of a booming voice, so that quickly melted away that concern! Either your kind of presence translates to the stage or it doesn’t. It’s up to the theater gods, I guess.” —Johansson in an interview with Broadway.com, 2/1/10
