The four-act epic, which officially opened at the Brooklyn Academy of Music Feb. 12, stars Tony Award winners Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy. BAM is not able to confirm or deny the potential transfer at this point.

Director Robert Falls (Long Day's Journey Into Night, Desire Under the Elms) helms the five-hour drama that sold out its Chicago run in 2012. The original Chicago cast and creative team reunite for the BAM engagement, which is presented in association with Rudin, who holds Broadway rights to the play.

In O'Neill's masterwork, a series of devastatingly comic and heartbreaking events transpire at Harry Hope's saloon, home to an eclectic mix of patrons whose lives are upended by the arrival of traveling salesman and old friend Hickey.

The Iceman Cometh features set design by Kevin Depinet, lighting by Natasha Katz and costumes by Merrily Murray-Walsh.

The play was last revived on Broadway in March 1999, starring Kevin Spacey and was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play.
