Last night was the opening of Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber's Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's A View From The Bridge. Naomi Watts, Hugh Jackman and Ellen Barkin were all there to watch the stars try their hand at live theater. So what did the New York Times have to say about Johansson's stage debut?-
"Watching the daily rituals of the small family in mid-1950s Red Hook, Brooklyn, made up of the characters so exquisitely played by Mr. Schreiber, Ms. Johansson and Jessica Hecht, feels like spying across the alley on neighbors who would normally be invisible to you...Ms. Johansson melts into her character so thoroughly that her nimbus of celebrity disappears. Her Catherine is a girl on the cusp of womanhood, feeling her way down familiar paths that have suddenly been shrouded in unfamiliar shadows."
So apparently Scarlett shone in the role that Brittany Murphy played to similar acclaim twelve years ago.
The one question of the evening? WHERE WAS RYAN REYNOLDS?! Was he just feeling camera-shy, or did he really miss his wife's Broadway debut?
