Scarlett Johansson to Make Broadway Debut

Scarlett Johansson is the latest actress to make her Broadway debut. The 24-year old leading lady will be starring in the stage revival of Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge.

According to Variety, Scarlett will star opposite Liev Schreiber, who has done several Broadway productions. As you remember, Schreiber won a Tony Award for his performance in the 2005 revival of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross. Not a bad person for Scarlett to co-star with for her first time!

The show will run for 14 weeks beginning in December for previews, then making its formal debut on January 24th. Liev will play the part of the Brooklyn longshoreman who is romantically obsessed with his 17-year-old orphaned niece, played by Johansson.

We all know Schreiber is capable of owning the stage, but do you think Scarlett can pull off a role on Broadway?
