Scarlett Johannson will be 25 when she makes her Broadway debut this December as lovesick teenager Catherine in "A View From the Bridge." This production -- co-starring Tony Award winner Liev Schrieber ("Glengarry Glen Ross") as her lustful uncle Eddie -- is the third rialto revival of Arthur Miller's 1955 domestic drama.
The 1997 Roundabout production of "Bridge" (pictured here) won the Tony for best revival. Brittany Murphy -- who had just turned 20 -- played the nymphet. While she earned no accolades, Anthony LaPaglia as Eddie won the lead actor Tony while Allison Janney picked up a nod as his long-suffering wife, Beatrice. No word on who will get that plum part this time around.
The first remounting of "Bridge," in 1983, landed Tony Lo Bianco a Tony nom for lead actor and also contended for best revival. The original production starred Oscar winner Van Heflin as Eddie and Eileen Heckart as his wife. The one-act drama was performed alongside another Miller play -- "A Memory of Two Mondays" -- but neither figured in any prominent Tony categories in 1956.
