Direct from two completely sold-out engagements in London, producers Scott Rudin and Lincoln Center Theater brought the Young Vic's critically-acclaimed production of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge to Broadway this fall. The production, which swept the 2015 Olivier Awards - winning for Best Revival, Best Director, and Best Actor (Mark Strong) -began previews on October 21 and opened on November 12 at the Lyceum Theatre, 149 West 45 Street. A View from the Bridge played an 18-week limited engagement through Sunday, February 21, 2016.

The cast of A View from the Bridge - Arthur Miller's dark and passionate classic drama set on the Brooklyn waterfront - will be headed by 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). The production has scenic and lighting design by longtime van Hove collaborator Jan Versweyveld and costume design by An D'Huys.
