The Roundabout Theatre Company's acclaimed revival of A View From The Bridge has transferred to the Neil Simon Theatre. Previews began April 4 and the official re-opening is April 15.
Most of the current cast has moved with the show, though supporting player Daniel Serafini-Sauli has left for a role in Judas Kiss.
Penned as a long one-act in 1955 and then expanded the following year, A View From The Bridge, began Broadway previews Nov. 25 and opened Dec. 14. The staging comes after another well-received Arthur Miller revival at the Roundabout, All My Sons; and falls concurrently with a season-long Miller restrospective at Off-Broadway's Signature Theatre.
LaPaglia (The Rose Tattoo) stars alongside Allison Janney (Beatrice), Brittany Murphy (Catherine), Gabriel Olds (Rodolpho), Christian Lincoln, Daniel Serafini-Sauli, John Speredakos, Mark Zeisler, Jeffrey Donovan (Marco) and Robert LuPone (Aach). LuPone replaced original cast member Stephen Spinella.
Janney starred opposite Frank Langella in Present Laughter and Off Broadway in Blue Window, New England and Five Women Wearing The Same Dress. LuPone appeared in Zoya's House, Late Night Comic and the original cast of A Chorus Line (as Zach). He's an executive director of Off-Broadway's Manhattan Class Company. Donovan's credits include An Inspector Calls and Off Broadway's Skyscraper. Bridge takes a tragic look at a man afraid of losing his niece -- and the security of his own sexuality. Michael Mayer directs -- a real coup, since he also directed the recent Broadway musical Triumph Of Love. Mayer also staged Craig Lucas' Missing Persons in 1995 at NY's Atlantic Theatre Company, and he conceived and staged the WPA revue, Hundreds Of Hats.
