A View From the Bridge Arrives at the Alley Theater
Performances of the Arthur Miller drama begin tonight.
In the play, Eddie Carbone works the docks in 1950s Brooklyn, where he lives with his wife, Beatrice, and their young niece, Catherine. Now a teenager, Catherine is blossoming into womanhood, eliciting a sexual longing in Eddie that he does his best to repress. His inner turmoil is forced to the surface by the arrival of two illegal Italian immigrants into the house, one of whom catches Catherine's eye, driving Eddie to try and assert his dominance.
The cast includes Mark Zeisler (Eddie Carbone), Cara Ronzetti (Catherine), Frank de Julio (Marco), Jeffrey Bean (Alfieri), Josie de Guzman (Beatrice), Jay Sullivan (Rodolpho), Chris Hutchison (Louis/Immigration Office), Todd Waite (Immigration Office), and Elizabeth Bunch in the ensemble.
The creative team features scenic design by Hugh Landwehr, costume design by Alejo Vietti, lighting design by Clifton Taylor, sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen, fight direction by Luke Fedell, and dialect, voice, and text coaching by Pamela Prather. Brandon Weinbrenner is the assistant director.
Performances continue through May 21.
