Writing about The Iceman Cometh in 1985, Frank Rich of The New York Times raved, “the word ‘masterwork’ is not invoked lightly. Eugene O’Neill’s tragic vision remains undiminished by time. The Iceman Cometh is a ferocious American classic that has lost none of its power to send one shaking into the middle of the night.”
Mr. Washington, who just received his ninth Academy Award nomination, and returns to Broadway after his extraordinary sell-out runs in both Fences and A Raisin in the Sun, ends the 2017-18 Season in “the greatest American play” (New York Magazine) by “the greatest American playwright” (The Washington Post).
