A View from the Bridge
|April Culver, Jeffrey Fiorito, and Marjorie Hazeltine|
On its small, intimate stage and with an annual budget that likely cannot come close to matching many of its Bay Area counterparts, Pear Theatre has a reputation for staging classic plays that are bigger in scope than it probably should tackle and then doing so with a keen, fresh look and with consistent excellence. To a list of recent successes in this vein that includes Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, Tracy Letts’ August, Osage County, and Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, Pear Theatre now presents an arrestingly breathtaking, tensely gripping, and strikingly innovative production of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge.
