Two-time Oscar and Tony Award winner Denzel Washington returns to Broadway to tread the boards in one of the greatest modern tragedies to ever grace the stage. The Fences and Training Day actor joins Tony Award-winning director George C. Wolfe and EGOT-winning producer Scott Rudin as they tackle Nobel laureate Eugene O'Neill's formidable four-act epic. Nominated for one 2018 DRAMA DESK award and EIGHT 2018 Tony Awards including Best Leading Actor in a Play for Denzel Washington and Best Revival of a Play!
Running for a limited engagement of 14 weeks only, the production follows a succession of equally star-studded revivals, the last of which saw Nathan Lane take on the lead in 2015 at the Brooklyn Academy Of Music. Washington, last seen on Broadway in the critically acclaimed Raisin In The Sun, will take on the role of Theodore "Hickey" Hickman, the charming, would-be evangelical travelling salesmen at the center of this darkly poetic American fable.
Set in 1912, The Iceman Cometh follows a group of individuals on the fringes of polite society. These down-and-outers include anarchists, prostitutes, alcoholics and faded war heroes. They seek oblivion and inebriation at Harry Hope's Saloon, waiting for the semi-annual visits of the charismatic and party-starting Hickey, whose each arrival brightens up their bleak existence.
Yet when Hickey arrives a changed man, extolling the virtues of sobriety, the saloon's inhabitants are thrown into turmoil. As with many of his other works, O'Neill explores the dark side of the American Dream, in which anticipation and unmet expectations writhe beneath best laid plans and intentions.

Denzel is superb... – brilliant, captivating, and undeniably committed to this energy-sapping role!
Woes and whiskey have always been good friends, proven by the misfits in Eugene O'Neill's play The Iceman Cometh. As these men wallow at the bottom of the barrel in Harry Hope's bar they reminisce about the days gone by and dream hopefully of a better tRead full review
