Eugene O’Neill’s American classic play, The Iceman Cometh, made its Broadway premiere on April 26, 2018 to incredible reviews!
- “‘The Iceman Cometh’ is a ferocious American classic. It ranks among the theater’s finest works.” The New York Times
- “As monumental as a glacier. ‘The Iceman Cometh’ moves everything in its path with its inexorable, timeless power. Eugene O’Neill is the ignition key for American theater.” The Washington Post
- “Denzel Washington is the best living actor.” Deadline
- ” This Iceman is at once a star vehicle and an ensemble piece, and the ensemble here is stellar.” Newsweek
Set in the summer of 1912 at Harry Hope’s saloon on New York’s lower west side, this is O’Neill’s classic story of a freespending boisterous salesman who compels his fellow barflies to confront their pipe dreams.
Washington’s Broadway credits include A Raisin in the Sun, Fences, Julius Caesar, and Checkmates. He won the Tony Award for his performance as Troy Maxon in August Wilson’s Fences, a role he recently reprised for the 2016 film adaptation, which he also directed.
Wolfe has won five Tony Awards, three as a producer, and two as a director. His Broadway directing credits include Shuffle Along, Lucky Guy, The Normal Heart, Caroline, or Change, The Wild Party, and On the Town, among many more.
