     There wasn’t a standing ovation for A View from the Bridge on the night this reviewer was in attendance. Not because it didn’t deserve one. It did. However … the audience was so caught up in director John Ashton’s superb realization of Arthur Miller’s masterwork and the revelatory nature of his cast’s acting that there needed to be a moment of reverent silence at final curtain.
     Although one wished to extend his appreciation the curtain call was a jarring experience that shattered the reverie.
         Rick Yaconis was born to play Eddie Carbone. This is the second production of “A View from the Bridge” in which he’s proven that!
     Abby Boes’ portrayal of Eddie’s wife Beatrice, is deeply felt and richly imagined.
     Kevin Hart brings a studied wisdom and sad foresight to his portrayal of the lawyer, Alfieri. Hart’s performance as the voice of reason grounds the piece and bridges the scenes with the professional excellence theatre audiences have come to expect of him.
     Ben Cowhick provides us with a poignant interpretation of Rodolpho, the young immigrant who’s in love with Eddie’s niece, Catherine.
     Jonathan Brown’s performance in the role of Marco, Rodolpho’s older brother, is sheer heart-pounding potency.
     Amelia Carrada is a beautiful and talented actor whose portrayal of Eddie’s niece, Catherine makes us wish to see her onstage again soon. Marlowe's Musings
