UpStage Artists Presents Arthur Miller’s A View From The Bridge
Updated: Aug 30
Upstage Artists is preparing its second show of the 2023 season, Arthur Miller’s Tony Award Winning Play A View From The Bridge. This will be UpStage’s first full dramatic and tragic show. Up until now their shows have either been straight comedy or comedic dramas. A View From The Bridge will change that. The limits of family bonds and personal honor are tested in Miller’s gripping tragedy. The poverty of an American working class family comes face to face with the sheer destitution of their immigrant cousins, desperate to make a new life. Eddie Carbone is devoted to his wife Beatrice and his niece Catherine. When Beatrice’s cousins Marco and Rodolpho enter the US illegally, desperate to find work having fled the poverty of Sicily, the pair is welcomed into the Carbone home. But as Rodolpho and Catherine fall in love, Eddie’s adoration of his niece is no longer touching, but terrifying. Simmering with jealousy and obsession, Italian-American immigrant life of 1950s Brooklyn colors Miller’s searing drama of tragic proportions. The universal story of family, immigration and justice cuts deeply.
