‘A View from the Bridge’ Onstage at Throughline; Ras Prophet Plays Baja Bar & Grill (Sun., 7/24/22)

A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE by Arthur Miller. Throughline Theatre. Through August 6.

1) Playwright Arthur Miller lived an interesting life having written classic American plays like Death of a Salesman and The Crucible and being married to Marilyn Monroe. The marriage to Monroe only lasted for four years, but Miller’s impact on American Literature has remained strong. Throughline Theatre is producing another noted play by Miller, A View from the Bridge. The aforementioned bridge is the Brooklyn Bridge. The play is set in a nearby Italian-American neighborhood where the protagonist, Eddie Carbone’s life is on the decline ever since his wife’s orphaned niece falls in love with someone he disapproves of. The play considers the true cost of freedom. Recommended for ages 13+ due to some mature content. 3 p.m. Carnegie Stage, 25 W. Main St., Carnegie. (R.H.)
