eighth installment of our annual "Workers' Power Play Series",
we're proud to present one of the most powerful blue collar plays by one of
America's most defiantly pro-worker playwrights -- A
VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE by Arthur Miller.
This all-too-often overlooked masterpiece by
America's unapologetically "subversive" master playwright takes
us to the hard-bitten world of New York City's over-worked and
under-paid dock workers. Written in
1954 as a cry against McCarthyism, this brilliantly-constructed story of lust and betrayal, of
jealously and desperation, of ignorance and hardship exposes the gritty
underbelly of the American Dream where the
biggest mistake in life is to squeal to the authorities.
Join us as we revive this smoldering jewel of Classic
American Theatre... with all the subversive fury it deserves!
"You can quicker get back a million dollars
that was stole than a word that you gave away."
An extraordinary play like this calls for an
extraordinary cast and we're thrilled to have assembled one of the most
powerful casts ever to take the stage at our Manny Fried Playhouse. One
of Buffalo's leading actors, Thomas LaChiusa+ offers a stunning
portrayal of hard-headed Eddie Carbone as Lisa Vitrano is
incredibly powerful as his wife Beatrice. Other leading
performances come from Andrea Gollhardt as Catherine, James
Heffron as Rodolpho, Jeffrey Coyle* as Marco, and Jack
Agugliaro* as Alfieri. Other ensemble members include John
Kennedy*, Peter Calieri, Murry Galloway*, John Strong*, Guy DeFedericis*,
and Mary Katherine Lodick.
by Subversive Theatre's Founder & Artistic Designer Kurt Schneiderman* and
Assistant Director Lydia Kubiniec, this production also boast a
deliciously gritty set by Greg Natale, an evocative lighting-scape
courtesy of Michael
Lodick*, a creatively intense sound-scape courtesy by Brian Zybala*,
a rich array of striking 1950s costumes by Carolyn Walleshauser, and
period props by Lydia Kubiniec. Fight Choreography is by Adriano
Gatto with Dance Choreography by Monica Karwan*.
"The law is only
a word for what has a right to happen. When the law is wrong it's
because it's unnatural, but in this case it IS natural and a river will drown
you if you buck it!"
