Directors Note

I reread Arthur Miller’s A View From The Bridge about a year ago for the first time in twenty years. I was immediately struck by the play’s simultaneous simplicity and power. View is about family, about love, about betrayal and revenge. It is intensely private- an inquiry into the individual’s relationship with self and consciously social- exploring the relationship of the same individual to neighborhood, community, society and the world. Miller has likened the play to a Greek tragedy in both temper and scope. He employs the role of the lawyer, Alfiere, as a choregus or commentator on the action. Eddie Carbone is the product of a specific culture, a religion and society. For many audience members this specific world may appear remote, even foreign. But Eddie himself is a stranger to no one. For we recognize in him our individual blindness’s which remain, despite their glaring transparency to the eye of the observer, the eternal secret from our deepest selves. It is our pleasure and privilege to perform this play for you this evening. Welcome!
