In The Iceman Cometh, Harry Hopeâ€™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 heartbreakingâ€”and a revelation that threatens to shatter the tenuous illusions that fuel their lives. Oâ€™Neillâ€™s monumental drama is â€œas corrosive as rotgut whiskey, as morbidly funny as a funeral gone amok, and as hallucinatory as an alcohol-fueled excursion into purgatoryâ€ (Chicago Sun-Times).Visit the Goodman virtually: catch the latest news and updates on the Goodmanâ€™s Blog, Goodman-Theatre.Blogspot.com/; like us on Facebook.com/GoodmanTheatre; follow us at Twitter.com/GoodmanTheatre; and peek behind the scenes at YouTube.com/TheGoodmanTheatre.
