A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE
at the Cort

UNHOLY DESIRES
By ROGER B. HARRIS
Published October 26 2009


Never out of view: That seems to be the case with Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge. If it's not popping up in London ( it played at the Duke of York's in the  West End earlier this year), it's being revived in the Big Apple. This time around, stars Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson will be topcast in the Miller classic, heading for the Cort on Broadway. The 14- week run starts  December 28 and opens January 24. Gregory Mosher will be the director.

Schreiber, who won a Tony for the 2005 revival of Glengarry Glen Ross, will play Eddie Carbone, a longshoreman, whose unhealthy obsession with his 17-year old  niece Catherine (Johansson) sets in motion a series of events that end in tragedy.

Johansson will be making her Broadway debut. She  has appeared off-Broadway, making her professional acting debut at the age of eight in Sophistry. Most people will know her from her many film roles, including Match Point, Lost in Translation, He's Just Not That Into You and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Further casting will be announced at a later date.

Along with Mosher, the creative team will include John Lee Beatty( scenic design), Jane Greenwood( costume design), Peter Kaczorowski( lighting design) and Scott Lehrer( sound design).
