In the 2016 Tony Award-winning production of "A View From the Bridge" (Best Revival and Best Direction), Eddie Carbone (Weller) is a Brooklyn longshoreman obsessed with his 17-year-old niece, Catherine (Combs). When Catherine falls in love with a newly arrived immigrant (Register), Eddie's jealousy erupts in a rage that consumes him, his family and his world.
This production of Miller's classic was first presented at the Young Vic in 2014 then transferred to the West End in 2015 and was awarded three Olivier Awards (Best Actor, Best Revival and Best Director). The production opened on Broadway in November 2015 for a limited run and closed this past February.
Following the run at the Ahmanson Theatre, Center Theatre Group will tour this production to the Kennedy Center for an engagement in the Eisenhower Theater which will play from November 18 through December 3, 2016.
