History :: Now Playing :: Schedule :: Reviews

One doesn’t need to look far for A View From A Bridge reviews. This is because not only has the play done fairly well over the years; it has also been revived many times on the stage. While Arthur Miller is generally remembered for his plays like Death of a Salesman, A View From A Bridge is an equally powerful play. Perhaps it hasn’t achieved the same level of fame because it is a bit grittier and on a different level than Death of a Salesman. But the two plays have a lot in common.

Tragic Flaws

Most A View From A Bridge reviews will mention how the central character Eddie Carbone is similar to Willie Loman in Death of a Salesman. They are from different strata of society but they are both tragic figures. In both cases, we cannot brand their actions as being simply ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. We can understand why these men act the way they do, even if the results of these actions are unfortunate. Both these men have tragic flaws which eventually lead to their downfall. And both these characters require a very special kind of actor to portray them effectively. Actors like Dustin Hoffman and Anthony LaPaglia have shone in the roles depicting these characters.

Many A View From A Bridge reviews also say that both these plays can be classified as kitchen sink dramas. The bulk of the interaction and drama happens in a domestic setting, between characters that look happy on the surface. But as the plays progress, it becomes clear that all is not well. A View From A Bridge may not be one of Miller’s better known plays but it has been revived right across the world. During these times, people find it hard to get tickets for the show, especially if there are big-name Hollywood actors slated to play the lead roles.

Not Just The Stage

A View From A Bridge reviews will mention that the play is not simply relegated to the theater. This play has proven to be versatile enough to be made into opera, movie and a television mini-series. The two movies called Rocco and his Brothers and Vu du Pont were both inspired by this play. In 2005, it was announced that another film version was being planned with Anthony LaPaglia playing the part of Eddie. It’s worth noting that LaPaglia played Eddie in one of the most famous revivals of the play. Frances McDormand and Scarlett Johansson are also slated to perform. Johansson also stars in the recent revival of this play on stage, which has been the subject of many positive A View From A Bridge reviews.

During the 1980s, this play was made into a mini-series in the UK. It was also made into an opera in 1999 and has been revived in this form in 2002, 2007 and 2009. Given the difficulty one may face when trying to book tickets to this play, it makes sense to purchase them from an authorized online ticket vendor.
