Actress Scarlett Johansson will make her Broadway debut starring in a revival of American
playwright Arthur Miller's drama "A View from the Bridge," the show's organizers said on

Amid a growing trend of Hollywood stars appearing in Broadway plays, Johansson, 24, will
appear on the Great White Way opposite actor Liev Schreiber in the drama set in 1950s
America about a Brooklyn dockyard worker obsessed with his 17-year-old niece, to be played
by Johansson.

Previews will begin December 28 and the show will run for 14 weeks.

Johansson's list of films include "The Horse Whisperer", "Lost in Translation" and Woody
Allen's "Match Point" in 2005. She also released an album this year with U.S. singer Pete
Yorn. Schreiber has already appeared on Broadway several times, including winning a Tony
award, as well as in films.

Other high-profile film actor's to have appeared on Broadway this year include Jude law,
Hugh Jackman, Daniel Craig, Sienna Miller and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Strong ticket sales in the 2008/2009 Broadway season have been credited to the
concentration of big name stars and Broadway producers have said it is now essential to
have Hollywood stars to ensure big profits in plays on Broadway.
