De Eugene O'Neill

Résumé: But The Iceman Cometh cannot be simply written off as a star vehicle. And although Mr. Washington's name is above the title - and he is indeed giving a career-defining performance - the beauty of this dark play is the fact that it is an ensemble piece. And what an ensemble acclaimed director George C. Wolfe has put together! Over the course of four hours, we learn to love this bunch of misfits like members of a dysfunctional family. We feel their anxieties, we sense their helplessness, we revel in their contagious joy and are crushed in their lowest moments. With standout performances from the likes of David Morse, Austin Butler, and Tammy Blanchard, just to name a few, and comic relief a plenty from the perfectly cast pairings of Dakin Matthews and Frank Wood or Carolyn Braver and Nina Grollman, Mr. Washington is in great company.

Clocking in at around four hours, The Iceman Cometh requires audience members to invest time and patience, but the final act return on investment is climactic to say the very least. Cometh and experience it for yourselves.

Commentaires : Arguably the most acclaimed piece of theatre from the hand of esteemed playwright Eugene O'Neill, The Iceman Cometh once again to the Broadway stage. The central character of Hickey is a dream role for many an accomplished actor and now the honor falls to Tony and two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington…

Tony and two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington returns to Broadway in Eugene O'Neill's classic The Iceman Cometh. The play follows Hickey, a troubled alcoholic who takes it upon himself to dissuade fellow drinkers in a NYC bar to give up their pipe dreams and face the harsh realities of life, uncovering the secrets of his own past in the process.
