Will Nathan Lane & Brian Dennehy Bring Iceman Cometh to B’way?

first_img View Comments It’s perfect weather for Iceman rumors, is it not? The Brooklyn Academy of Music production of Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece The Iceman Cometh, starring Tony winners Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy, has its eyes on a Broadway transfer. Deadline reports that the sold-out production, co-produced by Scott Rudin, has no official plans or a timeline for the move, but talks of one are indeed in place. Rudin confirmed to the site via email that there is “nothing near decided yet.”A five-hour-long, 18-character epic set in 1912 in Harry Hope’s NYC bar, The Iceman Cometh debuted on Broadway in 1946. The play was most recently revived in 1999 in a production starring Kevin Spacey as the garrulous Hickey. (In a hotly contested Best Actor Tony race, Dennehy’s performance in Death of a Salesman bested Spacey’s bravura star turn.)The production is expected to conclude its run at BAM on March 15. In addition to Lane and Dennehy, the cast includes Stephen Ouimette, Larry Neumann Jr., Salvatore Inzerillo, Marc Grapey, John Judd, John Reeger, James Harms, John Douglas Thompson, Lee Wilkof, John Hoogenakker, Patrick Andress, Tara Sissom, Lee Stark and Kate Arrington.
