A view from the bridge op Broadway

home  >  nieuws  >  A view from the bridge op Broadway (13 nov 2015)

De met Olivier Awards bekroonde voorstelling A View from the Bridge – die Van Hove vorig jaar bij Young Vic regisseerde – ging gisteravond in het Lyceum Theatre in New York in première. Het is Van Hoves debuut op Broadway. En wat voor een debuut. Een bloemlezing uit de verschenen recensies.

'This must be what Greek tragedy once felt like, when people went to the theater in search of catharsis. Ivo van Hove's magnificent reconception of Arthur Miller's "A View From the Bridge," which opened on Thursday night at the Lyceum Theater, takes you into extreme emotional territory that you seldom dare visit in daily life. At the end of its uninterrupted two hours, you are wrung out, scooped out and so exhausted that you're wide awake. You also feel ridiculously blessed to have been a witness to the terrible events you just saw.' - The New York Times

'Van Hove is a genius at revealing and actualising the emotional currents that run underneath dialogue, of giving subtext a visceral and violent expression. So it wasn’t a given that he would succeed with Miller. More than one character explicitly states Eddie’s predicament, a deeply felt but dangerously unacknowledged desire for his niece, so this text isn’t exactly sub. But Miller can be mealy mouthed about desire itself, which he always seems to treat as something at least a little distasteful. By focusing so keenly on it, Van Hove inflames what had come to seem a settled text. This is an exhilarating production, assured and perilous, abstract and concretely physical.' - The Guardian

'Shatteringly tough revivals such as A View from the Bridge can inspire dueling emotions. First, obviously, there's immense satisfaction and gratitude that Belgian director Ivo van Hove digs down and grabs the pulsing, bloody heart of Arthur Miller's 1956 drama...But then comes anger that similarly audacious visions of the classics are so rare...The head that throbs the hardest is bullet-clean and belongs to Mark Strong, who gives a performance of harrowing intensity as doomed Eddie Carbone...Van Hove stages this elegant and lean tale with almost perverse understatement...Earlier I promised angry words about New York's "classics problem"...Our directors need to study how [van Hove] strips away anything inessential to the text and lasers in on breathing, moving bodies in space.'- Time Out NY

'If you think you've seen Arthur Miller's dark classic "A View From the Bridge" enough times, think again. The muscular production that opened Thursday night at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre is a stunning, imaginative theatrical experience, an impassioned interpretation that really brings the heat to Miller's gripping drama. Imported from London's Young Vic after winning three Olivier Awards, the streamlined, no-holds-barred presentation marks an explosive Broadway debut for renowned European director Ivo van Hove and his longtime design collaborator, Jan Versweyveld.'- ABC News

'Van Hove knows what he's doing, all right. Where I've often thought the playwrights he's toyed with would greatly disapprove of the toying, I suspect that were Miller to have seen this treatment, he would've applauded. As the actors aren't being asked to underline subtexts along with the text, they're free to play Miller's script to the utmost.'- Huffington Post

'And just like that, Ivo van Hove cements his place irrefutably among the most revolutionary theater makers of our time. Because in its elemental economy, its flashes of uncanny insight, his revival of Arthur Miller's "A View from the Bridge," from London's Young Vic, is simply staggering. The story of Eddie Carbone, the proud Brooklyn longshoreman who implodes under the pressure of urges he cannot comprehend, barrels to a finish here with all of the disorienting impact of a high-velocity collision. As a result, Broadway's Lyceum Theatre, where the production had its official opening Thursday night, is a required destination for any pilgrim whose object of worship is serious drama.'- Washington Post

'On Broadway, Arthur Miller’s getting shocked back to life at the Lyceum with a pared-down but stunningly intense production of “A View From the Bridge.” No stars, no props and a minimal set help us focus on the tortured relationships at the heart of this modern tragedy. The tension never dips as the show heads toward the kind of mind-blowing climax that’s the stuff of Broadway legend.' - New York Post

'Director of the moment Ivo van Hove's stunning reappraisal of the 1956 Arthur Miller drama is led by a knockout performance from Mark Strong.' - The Hollywood reporter

'The muscular production that opened Thursday night at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre is a stunning, imaginative theatrical experience, an impassioned interpretation that really brings the heat to Miller's gripping drama.'- Newser 

'Breathe, everybody, breathe! Audiences really need to be reminded of that at the end of Ivo Van Hove’s magnificent production for the Young Vic of A View From the Bridge,' - Variety

A View from the Bridge is nog t/m 21 februari in het Lyceum Theatre op Broadway te zien en wordt geproduceerd door topproducer Scott Rudin. Het artistieke team bestaat uit Jan Versweyveld (scenografie en lichtontwerp), An D’Huys (kostuums) en Bart Van den Eynde (dramaturgie).
