Directed by Robert Falls, features Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy

Brooklyn. NY – BAM and Scott Rudin will present Goodman Theatre’s renowned revival of Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh from February 5 through March 15, 2015. Directed by Goodman Artistic Director Robert Falls and featuring Tony Award-winning stage and screen actors Nathan Lane (as Theodore “Hickey” Hickman) and Brian Dennehy (as Larry Slade), the production, including its original Chicago cast, is slated for a six-week run in the BAM Harvey Theater. Ticket on-sale dates will be announced in the fall of 2014.

In its spring 2012 premiere at the Goodman—Chicago’s largest and most established not-for-profit theater company—this five-hour, 18-character epic portrait of hope and disillusionment garnered critical acclaim and broke box-office records in an extended run. Its capacity audiences marked the most successful production in Goodman Theatre history. According to the Chicago Tribune, “The Iceman Cometh…will stand tall as one of the most significant productions in Chicago history,” and The New York Times cited “…as many great performances as I’ve seen in a single show for years.”

BAM Executive Producer Joseph V. Melillo said, “We are thrilled to present Robert Falls’ powerful production of O’Neill’s masterpiece and welcome Brian Dennehy and Nathan Lane to our stage. This epic drama will continue our tradition of bringing singular productions of great theater to BAM audiences and will be a highlight of our 2015 winter/spring season.”

Director Robert Falls, whose productions of O’Neill’s works with his longtime artistic collaborator Brian Dennehy have been the hallmark of his 27-year artistic directorship of Goodman Theatre, said, “It’s a wonderful opportunity to revisit Eugene O’Neill’s masterwork with Nathan, Brian, and our brilliant company. Our production in Chicago was one of the highlights of my tenure at the Goodman, and we’re thrilled to share it with New York audiences.”

“The Iceman Cometh is an artistic triumph for the Goodman and Robert Falls, who is arguably the American theater’s leading interpreter of Eugene O’Neill’s work. We are proud to partner with the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Scott Rudin to give his profound and revelatory revival another life,” said Roche Schulfer, Goodman Theatre Executive Director.
