SAU Theatre’s Next Production: A View from the Bridge


02/08/2018

Now that we are all back from our Winter Break, it is time for our next show!

The first show of this semester is A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller. It will be performed in the Galvin Fine Arts Center Studio Theatre in a thrust style, meaning that the audience surrounds the stage on three sides. This classic play by Arthur Miller, who has written other well-known plays such as The Crucible and Death of A Salesman, is a story of a longshoreman, Eddie Carbone (played by first-year Bryan Woods), and Eddie's family and the troubles they face when they take in two of their cousins from Italy illegally.

The director for the show is senior Sam Jones who has just returned from a semester abroad in the UK. Jones also recently placed third at the annual Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF), as well as being a finalist in the Society of Directors and Choreographers (SDC) competition. This is Jones' second time directing in the studio, having previously directed Jerry Finnegan's Sister by Jack Neary. It is obvious that this show will be in good hands!

The show will have a special four-performance run beginning with February 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m., and on Feb. 17 and 18 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $6, and we highly suggest you get them early because the studio theatre only seats 50 people and will sell out fast. Tickets are available by phone, online, or in person at the Galvin Box Office.
