A View from the Bridge

In 1950s Brooklyn, a longshoreman takes in a pair of undocumented Italian brothers and when one of them takes up with his niece, his world begins to fall apart. Seattle Rep offers up an exceptional production of this Arthur Miller play—its cast is first-rate, its set is a must-see and even the jazzy interludes serve the story well. The story, mind you, is one you’ll keep talking about long after the show: So what exactly was the extent of longshoreman Eddie’s affection for his grown niece?

Most shows will be at the Rep itself, but on Oct. 13, the Rep presents a night of immersive theater at the Wing Luke Museum, where an entirely Asian American cast will read from the play in the rooms of the Wing’s historic tenement hotel.

If you go: A View from the Bridge, Seattle Rep, through Oct. 18 (Tickets start at $41)—F.D.
