REVIEWS

This must be what Greek tragedy once felt like, when people went to the theater in search of catharsis. Ivo van Hove’s magnificent reconception ofArthur Miller’s “A View From the Bridge,” which opened on Thursday night at the Lyceum Theater, takes you into extreme emotional territory that you seldom dare visit in daily life. At the end of its uninterrupted two hours, you are wrung out, scooped out and so exhausted that you’re wide awake. You also feel ridiculously blessed to have been a witness to the terrible events you just saw.

------New York Times
Van Hove stages this elegant and lean tale with almost perverse understatement. The actors are barefoot, speaking in measured, almost diffident tones. The simplicity and restraint, however, gathers to a ferocious and bloody head that leaves you breathless and aghast. Lest you think direction and design is the real star (yes, both are utterly amazing), the ensemble (most of them direct from the Young Vic world premiere in London) is uniformly superb, palpably relishing van Hove’s emotionally transparent approach. The head that throbs the hardest is bullet-clean and belongs to Mark Strong, who gives a performance of harrowing intensity as doomed Eddie Carbone.

-----TimeOut NY
Van Hove's neat, spare staging brings perhaps too much order and rationality to a disorderly story of irrational passion. Still, considering these are the memories of our attorney narrator Alfieri, its resemblance to a pristine deposition makes sense. Beyond that, van Hove does Miller a great honor by taking A View from the Bridge out of the museum and asserting it as a living, breathing work capable of being reimagined ad infinitum, like the best plays by Shakespeare.
