The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will present, in association with Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, the Young Vic’s 2015 Olivier Award-winning production of Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge, which was recently seen on Broadway.

Directed by Ivo van Hove, performances are scheduled for November 18-December 3 in the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater.

Casting will be announced at a later date.

This production is produced by Center Theatre Group and will tour exclusively to the Kennedy Center following the Los Angeles engagement.

The Broadway cast included Mark Strong (as Eddie Carbone), Nicola Walker (as Eddie’s wife Beatrice), Phoebe Fox (as his niece Catherine), Michael Zegen (Marco), Russell Tovey (Rodolpho), Richard Hansell (Louis) and Michael Gould (Alfieri).

The Broadway production had scenic and lighting design by longtime van Hove collaborator Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and sound design by Tom Gibbons.

The Young Vic production premiered in April 2014 to ecstatic reviews and instantly sold out its initial engagement. The production subsequently transferred to London’s West End, where it recently concluded another sold-out run. The production won Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Director and actor Strong.

Kennedy Center Theater subscriptions for the 2016-17 season go on sale in early May. For more information visit kennedy-center.org.
