About the show

Visionary director Ivo van Hove's acclaimed production of Arthur Miller's classic play about forbidden desire comes from London's West End to Broadway, where it won two 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Revival. More…

In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom. But when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a price. Eddie’s jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret – one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal. This lauded production is a transfer from London’s West End where it won the 2015 Olivier Awards for Best Revival, Best Actor and Best Director. This is the Broadway debut of auteur director Ivo Van Hove.
