Time Out New York

Closed 26 Jun 2016

Jessica Lange, GaBriel Byrne & michael Shannon

Two-time Oscar winner and now Tony Winner Jessica Lange leads the cast of this new Eugene O'Neil adaptation, staged as part of Roundabout Theatre's 50th Anniversary season. This Pulitzer Prize winning play, which was published posthumously in 1956, is set over the course of a single day, and tracks the strained relations of the drug and sickness affected Tyrone family. A typically intelligent and finely wrought character piece from O'Neill, Long Day's Journey Into Night was previously seen on Broadway in 2003, with Philip Seymour Hoffman among the cast.

The powerful drama was nominated for an astounding seven Tony Awards, winning two including Best Actress In A Play (Jessica Lange). Lange (American Horror Story), who last trod the boards in New York in 2005's The Glass Menagerie, takes on the role of Mary, while Golden Globe winner Byrne (The Usual Suspects) stars as her husband James and Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, 99 Homes) plays their son James Jr. It's directed by Jonathan Kent (Man of La Mancha).

What is Long day's Journey Into Night About?

In 1912 Connecticut, Mary Tyrone returns home to her husband and two sons after treatment for morphine addiction. Her restless presence creates an air of escalating anxiety in the house, an atmosphere compounded by the increasingly violent coughing of younger son Edmund. This nervous energy sparks off numerous quarrels and reprimands, with Edmund's medical problem all the while growing ever more serious.
