A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE
By Arthur Miller
Directed By Nick Sala
Set in the 1950s on the gritty Brooklyn waterfront, A View From the Bridge follows the cataclysmic downfall of Eddie Carbone, who spends his days as a hardworking longshoreman and his nights at home with his wife, Beatrice, and orphan niece, Catherine. But the routine of his life is interrupted when Beatrice's cousins, illegal immigrants from Italy, arrive in New York. As one of them embarks on a romance with Catherine, Eddie's envy and delusion plays out with devastating consequences. Sexual repression, jealousy, paranoia and homophobia drive Eddie to an act of betrayal that has tragic consequences for himself, his family and the whole community.

Eddie Carbone worked the waterfront summer, fall, winter and spring. It was a hard life. Very hot in the summer, very cold in the winter. CITG wants to help provide some warmth to our neighbors who need it this winter. The CITG board is asking its audience members to bring new winter scarves and hats to their productions of “A View From the Bridge.” These will be donated to Part of the Solution (POTS) to be distributed to the under served in our community.
We have been overwhelmed by our audiences’ generosity in the past. We thank you in advance for your generosity again this year. This is what community is about.
