In 2010, A View from the Bridge played on Broadway to rave reviews. It starred Liev Schreiber (from The Painted Veil) and Scarlett Johansson (who won a Tony award for her portrayal of Catherine). Here are some clips of the actors talking about the play, and some of them in action on stage.

A short documentary about the new production:

The cast talk about the show:

A clip from early in the play: ‘You’re walking wavy…’

Eddie tells Catherine she can’t take the job she’s been offered. Boo you, Eddie!

‘You don’t know nothin’ Eddie warns Beatrice and Catherine to keep quiet about Marco and Rodolfo. Oh, the irony.

‘When am I gonna be a wife again, Eddie?’

Beatrice tells Catherine to grow up around Eddie
