BWW Review: Unusual Staging Intensifies Tony Winning A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGEBWW Review: Unusual Staging Intensifies Tony Winning A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE
by Don Grigware - Sep 15, 2016

I hate when one acoustical element in a theatrical production prevents me from thoroughly enjoying the play. In A View From the Bridge, the Young Vic production currently at the Ahmanson through October 16, my concern was regarding Frederick Weller playing Eddie Carbone. He's a fine actor, but for some reason, from the very top, his voice was not carrying adequately over the stage to the audience. I could not hear many of his line deliveries in the first several minutes, and I was straining to understand. Perhaps because of the shell-like structure surrounding the actors center stage? Other voices seemed dimmed as well, so this set may have caused the problem. For a while, I thought it was me, that I was going deaf, but after the performance other audience members voiced the same complaint. Other than that, I have mostly good things to report about this piece directed incisively by Ivo van Hove. It comes to LA from Broadway where it won last year's Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.
