Originating at London's Young Vic Theatre in April 2014, van Hove's staging of the drama subsequently moved to Wyndham's Theatre on the West End, where it received 2015 Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Director, and Best Actor for leading man Mark Strong.
Strong stars as Eddie Carbone, a Brooklyn longshoreman whose lust for his fetching niece Catherine (played by Phoebe Fox) leads to his downfall. The company also includes Nicola Walker as Beatrice Carbone, Michael Zegen as Marco, Michael Gould as Alfieri, Richard Hansell as Louis, and Russell Tovey as Rodolpho. All cast members but Zegen and Tovey are reprising performances they originated in England.
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.
Check back in tomorrow for TheaterMania's review of A View From the Bridge, as well as photo and video coverage of the opening-night festivities.
