The Iceman Cometh
By Eugene O'Neill
Goodman Theatre
Directed by Robert Falls

"Nathan Lane gives a performance that will stay with you for as long as you live."
—The Wall Street Journal
"By turns sardonic, mournful and filled with a terrifying rage, Brian Dennehy undertakes an evening-long struggle with himself that's riveting to watch."
—Time Out Chicago
“Mr. Falls’s superbly cast production contains as many great performances as I’ve seen in a single show in years…”
—The New York Times

Tony Award-winning stage and screen actors Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy come to BAM for the Goodman Theatre’s revival of Eugene O’Neill’s trenchant portrait of hope and disillusionment. At Harry Hope’s saloon, the biannual visit of charismatic traveling salesman Hickey (Lane) is cause for celebration. But when a newly sober Hickey arrives, his renewed outlook on life threatens to upend the lives of his old friends, leading to a series of devastatingly comic and heartbreaking events.

This epic 18-character drama—which garnered critical acclaim and broke boxoffice records in its extended Chicago run—is directed by Robert Falls, whose productions of O’Neill’s works (with longtime artistic collaborator Dennehy) have been the hallmark of his 27-year tenure at the Goodman.
