A View From The Bridge – Greek Tragedy

14 02 2010

A View from the Bridge is set in Red Hook, then a blue-collar Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood. It tells the story of a longshoreman, Eddie Carbone, and his obsession with his teenaged niece, Catherine. From the opening moments of the play, there’s no question how it’s going to end: A character tells the audience that Eddie Carbone is a dead man walking. And yet Schreiber says that even with this knowledge, the audience is on tenterhooks all evening — just like in a real Greek tragedy.

“I mean, you know from the outset exactly what’s going to happen,” he says. “The only question is how.”

“How” is director Gregory Mosher’s job. He says the challenge is to make every moment in this taut 97-minute drama as specific and revealing as possible. NPR.ORG

Check out our footage from the opening night of A View From the Bridge. A lot of celebs were on hand to support Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson in Arthur Miller’s classic play. We caught footage of Ellen Barkin, Annie Potts, Naomi Watts, Christine Lahti, Hugh Jackman, Barry Humphries, Rob Ashford, Pablo Schreiber, and Zachary Quinto on the red carpet. We were there at the afterparty and got pictures of the cast, including Jessica Hecht, Scarlett Johansson, and Liev Schreiber. Go and see The View From the Bridge at the Cort Theatre.
