Audiences will see significant parallels to today, in Arthur Miller’s “View From The Bridge,” which shines a light on illegal immigration — the more things change, the more they stay the same. In this case, however, it is Italian people who are making their way to America under the cover of darkness.

Longtime, renowned local director Paul Kershaw has taken Miller’s script, and has transformed the stage and theatre space of the Studio Stage Door right into the streets of mid-century Redhook, Brooklyn, New York.
