Richard Eyre’s Bristol Old Vic production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night officially opened Off-Broadway May 12 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The production, which stars Oscar winner Jeremy Irons and Oscar- and Olivier-nominated actor Lesley Manville, previously played the West End.
The Eugene O’Neill drama began performances in New York May 8 and is scheduled to continue through May 27.
Unfolding on a summer’s day in 1912, Long Day’s Journey Into Night paints a devastating portrait of the Tyrone family, including retired actor and alcoholic father James, his morphine-addicted wife Mary, and troubled adult sons Edmund and Jamie.
The cast also includes Matthew Beard (Edmund Tyrone), Rory Keenan (James Tyrone, Jr.), and Jessica Regan (Cathleen).
