Arthur Millers dark 1955 drama A View From the Bridge transports you to the rundown Red Hook tenement of Eddie Carbone, a longshoreman who displays more than an avuncular fondness for his 17-year-old orphan niece, Catherine, when she falls in love with a handsome immigrant newcomer. Though we havent done thorough research on this, were going to guess that no other actress who has starred in the role of Catherine could prove to be more irresistible to the jealous Eddie than the sultry Scarlett Johansson, who makes her Broadway debut here opposite Liev Schreiber. Tony winner Gregory Mosher directs.
