Award-winning actor Denzel Washington will star in play The Iceman Cometh on Broadway next spring.
Written by playwright Eugene O’Neill in 1939, the play takes place in Harry Hope’s saloon in west Manhattan. The bar is filled with workers and businessmen telling tales about their lives, dreams, and aspirations as they await the arrival of Theodore Hickman, or Hickey (to be played by Washington), a charismatic traveling salesman. But instead of indulging them in his usual manner, Hickey implores them to give up their pipe dreams, and reveals as dark secret.
Washington has been on Broadway many times, the first being in 1988 with Checkmates. In 2010, Washington co-starred with Viola Davis in the critically acclaimed revival of August Wilson’s Fences.
The Tony Award-winning director George C. Wolfe will direct it, and Scott Rudin will serve as producer. Wolfe has directed many popular plays and musicals on Broadway, and co-wrote and directed The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks on HBO. Among others, Rudin has produced plays such as Shuffle Along and Fences.
This revival of The Iceman Cometh is set to begin March 22, 2018. It will run for 14 weeks, with an April 26 opening night at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
