NEW YORK (AP) - An audience member attending Arthur Miller’s “A View from the Bridge” has suffered a heart attack while attending the Broadway production.

Witnesses tell local media Saturday the man collapsed at the Lyceum Theater during the performance Friday evening.

Police say the man was suffering chest pains and then lost consciousness. He was rushed to a hospital by ambulance. His condition wasn’t immediately known.

The production stopped while the man was attended to and resumed after emergency medical workers transported him to get care.

Miller’s 1955 play about working-class Italian-Americans in Brooklyn was imported from London’s Young Vic where it won three Olivier Awards.
