"A magnificently concentrated revival. Ivo van Hove's celebrated production magnifies the conflicts under the surface and focuses our attention on Miller's writing. The stillness of the actors allows their sudden movements to take on heightened significance. The sound design quickens the dramatic pulse… and the final scene makes the leap from experimental theater to 21st century opera."
--The LA Times

In association with Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, the Kennedy Center presents the Young Vic's two-time 2016 Tony Award–winning production of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, coming to the Center direct from the Los Angeles engagement. The play is helmed by internationally renowned Belgian visionary Ivo van Hove, whose lauded production of Antigone graced the Eisenhower Theater in the fall of 2015.

Following its hit run on Broadway, this dark and passionate tale of family, love, and duplicity explores 1950s America in a small Italian-American Brooklyn neighborhood. Longshoreman Eddie Carbone is obsessed with his 17-year-old niece Catherine. When she falls in love with a newly arrived immigrant, Eddie spirals into a jealous rage that consumes him, his family, and his world.

The New York Times exclaims, "A View From the Bridge must be what Greek tragedy once felt like, when people went to the theater in search of catharsis…. You also feel ridiculously blessed to have been a witness."

Howard W. Overshown as Louis
Thomas Jay Ryan as Alfieri
Frederick Weller as Eddie
Catherine Combs as Catherine
Andrus Nichols as Beatrice
Alex Esola as Marco
Dave Register as Rodolpho
