An American Classic about a complicated family, Miller’s award-winning play A View From the Bridge comes to the LBC, produced by North Bay Stage Company. Like Death of a Salesman, this passionate drama about Italian-American immigrant life in the 1950s also examines the promise and the failure of the American Dream. It’s the story of Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone, a man who holds family and honor above all else — and yet betrays them both. Eddie is infatuated with the orphaned niece he’s raising as a daughter, but when she falls for one of her aunt’s recently immigrated cousins, their lives are set on a tragic course. Directed by Carl Hamilton.

A View From the Bridge premiered in NYC April 2014 to ecstatic reviews. The production subsequently transferred to London’s West End for a completely sold-out run. It won the 2015 Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Actor and Best Director. It was named the top theater pick of the year by Evening Standard, The Guardian and The Independent. The Times called it “one of the great theatrical productions of the decade.” The Financial Times called it “superb, searing and triumphant.”

Nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play! Top 10 Best Theater of 2015! The New York Times, Associated Press, Time Out New York, Time Magazine, and Entertainment Weekly.
