Trivia

  • This season marks the centenary of playwright Arthur Miller’s birth, and he is represented on Broadway both by A View from the Bridge and The Crucible. Both productions are directed by Ivo Van Hove.
  • Miller’s drama has been transformed into two different operas, one by Renzo Rossellini (Uno sguardo dal ponte) and the other by William Bolcom.

History

Miller’s play was first staged in 1955 as a one-act verse drama on the same bill as his A Memory of Two Mondays at Broadway’s Coronet (now Eugene O’Neill) Theatre. The playwright later revised the play to contain two acts. That version was staged on Broadway in 1983, 1988, and 2010. The Young Vic production of A View from the Bridge premiered in April 2014 and subsequently transferred to London’s West End. It won the 2015 Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Actor (Mark Strong) and Best Director (Ivo Van Hove).
