Photo Flash: 'A View from the Bridge' at the Guthrie
Director Ethan McSweeny (A Body of Water, Romeo and Juliet, Six Degrees of Separation) returns for this first-ever Guthrie staging of this acclaimed play by quintessential American dramatist Arthur Miller. A play as timeless as the Greek tragedies on which it is modeled, A View from the Bridge is the story of a Brooklyn longshoreman whose love for his niece turns destructive. Eddie Carbone (John Carroll Lynch, "Fargo" and "The Drew Carey Show") lives in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn with his wife Beatrice (Amy Van Nostrand, Six Degrees of Separation) and her orphaned niece Catherine (Robyn Rikoon, 2008 graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts), whom they have brought up as their own daughter.
Into the household come Rodolpho (Bryce Pinkham, a 2008 graduate of the Yale School of Drama) and Marco (Ron Menzel, Jane Eyre), two of Beatrice's cousins from Italy, who enter the country illegally in order to find work on the waterfront. Eddie's love for his niece turns to obsession when she strikes up a friendship with Rodolpho that blooms into romance. Eddie's conflicted feelings, which seethe with repressed sexual tension, lead him to betray his family's trust and take action that ends in violence.
