The Bridge opened for the first time in October 2017, and since then has produced a variety of plays, including A German Life, a one-woman show with Maggie Smith, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, an immersive re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic. My Name is Lucy Barton, performed by Laura Linney, will open on Broadway in January 2020.
