Winner! 2016 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, and Best Direction of a Play: Ivo van Hove!
Winner of the 2016 Drama League Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play!
Congratulations to Ivo van Hove on receiving the Drama League Award for Excellence in Directing!
The Young Vic production of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE premiered in April 2014 to ecstatic reviews and instantly sold out its initial engagement. The production subsequently transferred to London’s West End for another completely sold-out run. It won the 2015 Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Actor and Best Director. It was named the top theater pick of the year by Evening Standard, The Guardian and The Independent. The Timescalled it “one of the great theatrical productions of the decade.” The Financial Times called it “superb, searing and triumphant.” Time Out wrote, “To say visionary director Ivo van Hove’s production is the best show in London is like saying Stonehenge is the current best rock arrangement in Wiltshire; it almost feels silly to compare this pure, primal, colossal thing with anything else on the stage.”
The visionary director, Olivier winner Ivo van Hove, made his Broadway debut. The stellar cast was led by Mark Strong (The Imitation Game, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), who won the Olivier Award for his portrayal of Eddie Carbone in Miller’s dark and passionate classic drama set on the Brooklyn waterfront.
