Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment

Why See Long Day's Journey Into Night?

Starring Jeremy Irons And Lesley Manville

Transferring from London with its Olivier-nominated cast intact, Long Day's Journey into Night is a tense and potent staging of Eugene O'Neill's classic. The beating heart of the production is provided by Olivier Award winner Lesley Manville (Ghosts, Phantom Thread), whose Mary Tyrone is a ticking timebomb of emotional anguish and morphine-withdrawal torment. Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune, Dead Ringers) stars as her husband James, making his first return to the New York stage since 2003's A Little Night Music. Five-time Olivier winner Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal, Private Lives) directs.

What is Long Day's Journey 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, while Edmund's medical problem grows ever more serious.

What we thought

Engrossing haunting WORLD-CLASS

Beautifully staged, from casting to set design!

This is an excellent production from an exceptional cast and creative team helmed by director Richard Eyes. I would be surprised to not see it encounter several prominent awards - or nominations at the very least - during its run!
