Show Summary - The Iceman Cometh

The Iceman Cometh is a masterpiece of American theatre. It was written by Eugene O’Neill in 1939, and first produced on Broadway in 1946. Since then, there have been Broadway revivals in 1973, starring James Earl Jones, in 1985, starring Jason Robards, and in 1999, starring Kevin Spacey. More recently, in 2005, the Chicago Goodman Theatre production, starring Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy, transferred Off-Broadway to the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

The 2018 revival stars Denzel Washington in a production directed by George C. Wolfe and produced by Scott Rudin. Among its merits, The Iceman Cometh is known for being over four hours long. It is the story of Theodore Hickman, also known as “Hickey,” a traveling salesman who visits Harry Hope’s saloon in Manhattan twice a year. Charismatic and charming, Hickey has amassed quite a few friends over the years.

However, as the events of the play begin, Hickey has newly become sober, and when he returns to Hope’s saloon, his new perspective on life upends his old friends’ lives, resulting in a series of events that are in turn hilarious and heartbreaking.

This dark and poetic drama has won the hearts of audiences for decades, and the new production starring the unparalleled Denzel Washington is sure to do this play justice.
