The bridge, peripherally referred to in the play, is the Brooklyn Bridge and it is a powerful story of family, love, hate, betrayal and ultimately death. The play represents the “view” a longshoremen and his family who take in two illegal immigrants with profound and ultimately disastrous effects on family dynamics. Powerfully acted by the entire cast but particularly by Mark Strong as Eddie Carbone, the scion of the family and ultimately the victim of his own misguided but “pure”love of his daughter. The cast of eight actors does a masterful and moving job of bringing Miller’s written play to life. Many of the themes of this mid-1950s masterpiece remain relevant today, particularly as they relate to the integration of new immigrants into American life. A spellbinding drama important in the 1950s and equally today.
