The critically acclaimed Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge has been pronounced a runaway success.

 

 

 

Starring Jewish actors Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber, the play has recouped its initial $2.3 million investment, the producers announced. Variety reports that the production has pulled in about $7.2 million to date.

 

 

 

A View From the Bridge tells the story of a Eddie Carbone, a Brooklyn longshoreman who becomes obsessed with his 17-year-old niece, Catherine. When Catherine falls in love with a newly arrived immigrant, Eddie’s jealousy threatens to consume him, his family, and the world around him.

 

 

 

The 14-week limited engagement run continues until Apr. 4.
