Looking and History Boys Star Russell Tovey Joins Cast of Broadway's View From the Bridge
Tovey will star alongside Olivier Award winner Mark Strong in Ivo van Hove's upcoming revival of Arthur Miller's drama.
Tovey, last seen on the New York stage as Rudge in Alan Bennett's The History Boys, will take on the role of Rodolpho in Miller's drama, while Hansell, an original cast member of van Hove's Bridge revival last year London, will reprise his performance as Louis. They join the previously announced Mark Strong (as Eddie Carbone), Nicola Walker (as Eddie's wife, Beatrice), Phoebe Fox (as his niece Catherine), Emun Elliott (as Marco), and Michael Gould (as Alfieri), all of whom appeared in van Hove's production when it originated at the UK's Young Vic and transferred with it to the West End.
The production has scenic and lighting design by longtime van Hove collaborator Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D'Huys, and sound design by Tom Gibbons.
The Young Vic's A View From the Bridge premiered in April 2014 before transferring to London's West End, where it won the 2015 Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Director, and Best Actor for Strong. The Broadway mounting, a coproduction of Scott Rudin and Lincoln Center Theater, begins previews on October 21 and open on November 12 at the Lyceum Theatre. The 18-week limited engagement will run through February 21.
