Abstract

This article examines how director Ivo van Hove's groundbreaking production of A View from the Bridge reimagines Miller's realistic play. Van Hove transforms the tragedy into raw symbolic theater that employs many elements of the Theatre of the Absurd. This staging remakes the role of the narrator, Alfieri, who questions the meaning of Eddie Carbone's tragic ending and consequently may shed light on Eddie's possible homosexual desires.
