The Broadway revival of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh, starring Tony and Oscar winner Denzel Washington as Hickey, has postponed its first preview, scheduled for March 22, due to inclement weather. According to a press representative for the show, the March 21 snowstorm prevented set pieces from reaching the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre in time.
Ticket holders for the March 22 preview should contact their point of purchase for an exchange or refund.
The Iceman Cometh will now begin performances March 23. Directed by five-time Tony winner George C. Wolfe, the revival will officially open April 26.
