PHOTO CALL: Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy Star in The Iceman Cometh at Chicago's Goodman Theatre
By Krissie Fullerton
Nathan Lane, Brian Dennehy and Stephen Ouimette star in the new Robert Falls-directed production of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh, opening May 3 following previews that began April 21 at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago.
Here's how Goodman bills the classic by Pulitzer Prize winner and Nobel laureate O'Neill: "In The Iceman Cometh, Harry Hope's saloon is home to a ragtag band of drunks and dreamers who celebrate the arrival of Hickey, the charismatic traveling salesman whose raucous presence always ensures a grand good time. But when a newly sober Hickey blows in with a renewed outlook on life, his zealous attempts to fix the lives of his old friends leads to a series of events that are at once devastatingly comic and heartbreaking — and a revelation that threatens to shatter the tenuous illusions that fuel their lives."
In addition to Tony Award winner Lane, Tony winner Dennehy and Ouimettethe production also features Larry Neumann, Jr., Sal Inzerillo, Marc Grapey, John Judd, John Reeger, James Harms, John Douglas Thompson, Lee Wilkof, John Hoogenakker, Patrick Andrews, Tara Sissom, Lee Stark, and Kate Arrington.
Here's a look at the production:
