The Young Vic Production of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE

Producers: Center Theater Group in Los Angeles
Artistic Director: Michael Ritchie
Producing Director: Douglas C. Baker
Written by Arthur Miller
Directed by Ivo van Hove
Casting Director: Telsey + Company, Patrick Goodwin and Karyn Casl
Casting Assistant: Madison Sylvester
Casting Director (Los Angeles): Meg Fister

Ivo van Hove’s visceral reinterpretation of Arthur Miller’s classic family drama A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE swept the 2015 Olivier awards in this critically acclaimed production from London’s Young Vic. The production subsequently ran on Broadway this past fall with the original London Company. In this dark and all too human drama set on the Brooklyn Waterfront passions erupt when two young immigrant men arrive from Sicily, igniting a spark that threatens to explode the already blurred lines in this tight knit family and the community beyond.

Actors cast in Center Theatre Group’s production of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE will also be cast in a limited engagement at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Center Theatre Group will contract actors separately for each engagement

SEEKING:

EDDIE: Male, 40’s – early 50’s. A longshoreman. Proud, stubborn, passionate, impulsive. Powerful. Masculine and virile, but feeling for the first time his own oncoming age and the looming specter of his diminishing power. When he finds himself in circumstances he cannot control he doesn’t hesitate to use force to gain the upper hand. Extremely protective of what is his—especially when it comes to his young niece. Increasingly unable to separate reality from fantasy, giving himself the permission to go to great—even violent—lengths. A fierce temper.

BEATRICE: Female, 40’s. Eddie’s wife. Big-hearted and generous, she cares deeply for those around her. Loyal, perceptive and loving she is very concerned by her husband’s growing physical and emotional distance from her. Though her emotions may run as deeply as everyone else’s, she doesn’t have the luxury of letting them show and attempts to exercise her power in other, more subtle ways. She sees her relationship with her husband and her family deteriorating before her eyes. She is anxious to repair the situation any way she can.

CATHERINE: Female, Early 20’s to play 17. Eddie and Beatrice’s niece, who lives with them. Alluring, charming. A bright spirit. Eddie’s overbearing pampering has kept her in a state of arrested development, but she’s begun to come into her own, and is constantly testing the boundaries between being a girl and a grown woman. Both excited by and fearful of the outside world. Anxious to grow up and make her own life, but frightened of invoking her uncle’s fearsome wrath. Doesn’t fully understand the darker side of her uncle’s affection for her until it is too late.

RUDOLPHO: Male, 20’s. A young Italian immigrant. A blond-haired Sicilian. Handsome, charming, dashing. Masculine and confident. Charismatic. Enchanted by the romance of America, and has loftier dreams than being a longshoreman. Creative and unconventional. Stands out in a world where he’s supposed to live in the shadows.

ALFIERI: Male, 50’s. An Italian immigrant, now a lawyer in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Educated and well-spoken. Thoughtful, sympathetic towards Eddie, he tries to help him. Acts as the Chorus throughout the play. PRINCIPAL.

MARCO: Male Late 20’s – early 30’s. An Italian immigrant. Rudolpho’s brother. Hardworking, humble, polite. Responsible and practical. Has a wife and kids back home in Italy that he needs to provide for, and his obligations to them are never far from his mind. Measured and reasonable, but not afraid to use powerful force to resolve a situation that has gone too far. PRINCIPAL.

LOUIS: Male, Late 20’s – early 30’s. A longshoreman and friend of Eddie’s. Part of the Italian-American community in Red Hook. Working class, with a rough-hewn sense of humor. Exchanges easy and colorful banter with Eddie about the goings-on at the docks. (May also u/s the role of ALFIERI). PRINCIPAL.

OFFICER: Male, 30’s-40’s. An immigration officer. No nonsense. Born and bred in Red Hook he knows this neighborhood and the people who inhabit it like the back of his hand. He is caught between the black and white demands of his job and a community that has its own equally absolute ethics and rules.
