Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber star in Arthur Miller's drama.
Comments from published critics
‘‘"Although Eddie Carbone, [Arthur] Miller's doomed Brooklyn longshoreman, is inarticulate and confused about his feelings, there is an odd nobility to the man, particularly in Liev Schreiber's mesmerizing performance in a powerful revival of the play.... [Scarlett] Johansson, making her Broadway debut, is a revelation, giving a shaded, nuanced performance."’’
‘‘"First-rate... [director Gregory] Mosher has instilled in his outstanding cast an unconditional trust in Arthur Miller's text, evoking a time, a place and a 1950s blue-collar community with penetrating integrity. Each scene flows seamlessly from the one before in a production that expertly plants the seeds of inexorable tragedy yet grips with a tension and volatility that make every moment seem unpredictable."’’
‘‘“The revival of Arthur Miller’s 1955 play A View from the Bridge is a singular astonishment: a kind of theatrical lightning bolt that sizzles and startles at the same time, illuminating the poetry in the play’s prose and the subtlety in its streamlined construction.”’’
‘‘Arthur Miller's 1955 portrait of a fatally obsessed longshoreman, A View from the Bridge still packs a heckuva wallup. That’s indisputable from the Broadway revival anchored by Liev Schreiber, who’s excellent as expected, and Scarlett Johansson, whose New York debut is startlingly good.’’
‘‘“At the end of the day, you just can’t beat a good, taut yarn. And that’s exactly what Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge is, barreling down toward an ending that’s as shocking as it is inescapable.”’’
