‘A View From the Bridge’ to Kick off Ahmanson’s 50th Anniversary

Arthur Miller’s “A View From the Bridge,” directed by Ivo van Hove, will kick off the Ahmanson’s 50th season in production on Sept. 7.

It will be followed by “Amelie, a New Musical,” directed by Pam Mackinnon.

“We’ll celebrate this rich history with a stimulating roster of award-winning plays and musicals for the 2016-17 season,” said Michael Ritchie, Center Theatre Group’s artistic director.

“I’m very happy that we will be bringing the 2015 Tony Award-winning best musical, ‘Fun Home,’ to Los Angeles,” said Ritchie. Other award-winning productions will include the returns of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s “Into the Woods” and Marshall Brickman’s “Jersey Boys.”

The season will close with a production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” which won the 2015 Tony for best play, which runs beginning Aug. 2.

Ritchie said this season is bursting with works that will make audiences want to laugh, cry and ponder new ideas. “It’s a great way to spend a year at the Ahmanson and a great start to the next 5o years.
