Scarlett Johansson made a leap from the silver screen to the boards of Broadway. Her debut in New York’s hallowed theatre district has met wide acclaim. Johansson, who is starring in a revival of Arthur Miller’s

A View From the Bridge

at the Cort theatre, was praised for a strong performance that impressed a range of critics.

In Miller’s 1955 depiction of a working-class Brooklyn family torn apart by lust and revenge, Johansson plays Catherine, the 17-year-old niece of longshoreman, Eddie Carbone, played by Liev Schreiber.

Johansson herself appeared cheerful at the play’s premiere, during which she auctioned a pair of tickets for the show, giving the proceeds to relief efforts in Haiti, saying it was “a very new thing for me” and felt like “baring your soul”. It’s a little bit of a scary thing,” she said.
