Goodman Theatre: "The Iceman Cometh"
Date: June 16, 2012
Goodman Theatre presents "The Iceman Cometh"
By Eugene O'Neill
Directed by Robert Falls
Featuring Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy
NOW EXTENDED THROUGH JUNE 17TH!
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. O'Neill's monumental drama is "as corrosive as rotgut whiskey, as morbidly funny as a funeral gone amok, and as hallucinatory as an alcohol-fueled excursion into purgatory" (Chicago Sun-Times).
