“A singular astonishment: A kind of theatrical lightning blot that sizzles and startles at the same time. One of the best productions of Miller’s work that I’ve ever seen. A ravishing production.” – John Lahr, The New Yorker

“Extraordinary. Beautifully observed & exquisitely played by Liev Schreiber, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Hecht.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Each scene of Gregory Mosher’s searing revival of A View From the Bridge flows seamlessly from the one before in a production that grips with a tension and volatility that make every moment seem unpredictable. There’s not a false note in any of the performances or an ill-considered directorial stroke in Mosher’s clear-eyed approach to this first-rate revival.” – David Rooney, Variety

“One of the most satisfying evenings of Miller in memory. It’s a piece that stands up to the fiercest dramas that this playwright ever conjured. The acumen on display raises the Cort’s thermostat from what might have been coolly sobering to positively scorching. You’ll leave, happy to have felt the theatrical heat!” – Peter Marks, The Washington Post

“Purely first rate theatre! A shattering view of the Miller classic, this is a subtle, brooding production that builds in emotional power and by the end, has us sucked in.” –Roma Torre, NY1

“Live Schreiber is utterly captivating. Liev Schreiber and Jessica Hecht are a couple of titans. Scarlett Johansson holds her own beautifully on that stage. That’s very high praise given the superlative work surrounding her.” –Roma Torre, NY1

“Mr. Schreiber is such a complete actor, with organic physical precision…Ms. Johansson holds her own with seeming effortlessness. She melts into her character so thoroughly that her nimbus of celebrity disappears…. Ms. Hecht is excellent. Her taught, vigilant Beatrice is fully conscious.” -Ben Brantley, The New York Times

A View From The Bridge opens to rave reviews

A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE
OPENS TO RAVE REVIEWS

ON BROADWAY AT THE CORT THEATRE
FOR 14 WEEKS ONLY
http://www.AViewFromTheBridgeOnBroadway.com
<http://www.aviewfromthebridgeonbroadway.com/>

A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE starring Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson directed by Gregory Mosher opened to rave reviews last night.  Below is a just a few of the outstanding notices:
 
The New York Times’ Ben Brantley writes “What’s extraordinary about Gregory Mosher’s beautifully observed production of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE is how ordinary most of it feels.”  Click here to read the entire review:
http://theater.nytimes.com/2010/01/25/theater/reviews/25view.html?partner=rss&emc=rss <http://theater.nytimes.com/2010/01/25/theater/reviews/25view.html?partner=rss&amp;emc=rss>

Associated Press’ Michael Kuchwara writes “Arthur Miller’s A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE is a blue-collar Greek tragedy, a potent mix of melodrama and a classic fall from grace usually reserved for the brightest and best of heroes.” Click here to read the entire review:
http://www.seattlepi.com/artandlife/1404ap_us_theater_review_view_from_bridge.html <http://www.seattlepi.com/artandlife/1404ap_us_theater_review_view_from_bridge.html>

Variety’s David Rooney writes “Sometimes it’s high praise to call a stage director’s work invisible.  The compliment applies to Gregory Mosher’s searing revival of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, though it by no means indicates any lack of craftsmanship or insight.”  Click here to read the entire review:
http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117941959.html?categoryid=33&cs=1&nid=2562 <http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117941959.html?categoryid=33&amp;cs=1&amp;nid=2562>

USA Today’s Elysa Gardner writes “A new revival of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE features what could be this season’s most inspired piece of movie-star casting – though you may not immediately recognize the star.” Click here to read the entire review:
http://www.usatoday.com/life/theater/reviews/2010-01-25-bridge25_ST_N.htm <http://www.usatoday.com/life/theater/reviews/2010-01-25-bridge25_ST_N.htm>

Entertainment Weekly’s Thom Geier writes “Liev Schreiber is a slender fellow, but he has a longshoreman’s heft in the solid Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE.  As Eddie Carbone, the blue-collar Brooklynite with a too-strong attachment to his 17-year-old niece, he seems to carry the weight of the world on his thin shoulders.” Click here to read the entire review:
http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20339108,00.html <http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20339108,00.html>

The New Yorker’s John Lahr writes “The revival of Arthur Miller’s 1955 play A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE (deftly directed by Gregory Mosher, at the Cort) is a singular astonishment:  a kind of theatrical lightning bolt that sizzles and startles at the same time, illuminating the poetry in the play’s prose and the subtlety in its streamlines construction.”  The full review can be read in the issue on newsstands now.
 
New York Magazine’s Stephanie Zacharek writes “In an Arthur Miller’s play, human decency isn’t an everyday code of living to be carried out casually and instinctively but a set of guidelines just waiting to be intoned.” Click here to read the entire review:  
http://nymag.com/arts/theater/reviews/63230/ <http://nymag.com/arts/theater/reviews/63230/>

The Daily News’ Joe Dziemianowicz writes “Arthur Miller’s 1955 portrait of a fatally obsessed longshoreman, A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE still packs a heckuva wallup.  That’s indisputable from the Broadway revival anchored by Liev Schreiber, who’s excellent as expected, and Scarlett Johansson, whose New York debut is startlingly good.” Click here to read the entire review:

The NY Post’s Elisabeth Vincentelli writes “At the end of the day, you just can’t beat a good, taut yarn.  And that’s exactly what Arthur Miller’s A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE is, barreling down toward an ending that’s as shocking as it is inescapable.”  Click here to read the entire review:
http://www.nypost.com/p/entertainment/theater/reviews/uncle_left_weak_in_the_niece_Z5z49MW9UHFV995ENuyx6K <http://www.nypost.com/p/entertainment/theater/reviews/uncle_left_weak_in_the_niece_Z5z49MW9UHFV995ENuyx6K>

NY1 News’ Roma Torre writes “It’s no secret that Arthur Miller was aiming for Greek tragedy when he wrote A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE and so it’s fitting that the current Broadway revival would cast a couple of titans in two key roles.  Led by Liev Schreiber and Jessica Hecht, we get a shattering view of the Miller classic.”  Click here to read the entire review:

The Washington Post’s Peter Marks writes “When Liev Schreiber’s fingers ever so tenderly brush the cheek of Scarlett Johansson early on in the crackling revival of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, you pick up the gentlest hints of a gathering disturbance, one that is sure to shatter both a Brooklyn home and a Broadway audience.”  Click here to read the entire review:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/24/AR2010012402746.html <http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/24/AR2010012402746.html>
