A View from the Bridge to transfer to the West End
Date Posted: 30/11/14
Ivo van Hove’s acclaimed production of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge is to reach an even wider audience following confirmation that the show will transfer to the West End in the new year.
The Young Vic production has garnered plenty of positive comments from the critics, having been described as "one of the most powerful productions of a Miller play I have ever seen" by the Telegraph’s Charles Spencer.
According to a statement from the Old Vic, A View from the Bridge will transfer to the Wyndham's Theatre in February 2015, giving theatre enthusiasts further opportunity to find out why exactly it has set the critics alive with praise.
Performers Mark Strong, Emun Elliott and Phoebe Fox are all expected to reprise their original roles, and Luke Norris and Nicola Walker are expected to do the same
The creative team for the West End transfer remains exactly the same, with design and lighting by Jan Versweyveld, and costume design by An D’Huys; Ivo van Hove will once again direct.
Young Vic artistic director David Lan commented on the transfer: "Our Young Vic audiences were in no doubt that this is truly the production of a lifetime. I am thrilled so many more people will share this exceptional experience.
"We’re delighted to be playing in the West End for the third year in a row, welcoming new audiences to the style and ambition of the Young Vic."
A View from the Bridge is a two-act performance set in 1950s America that sees tragic protagonist Eddie fall in love with a beautiful woman called Catherine. The attraction soon turns obsessive, however, with terrible consequences.
Those wishing to see the newly announced West End production should be available between February 11th and April 11th, when the production will be playing at the Wyndham's. There will be a press night on February 16th.
