Tonight– Thursday– was supposed to be the first preview for Denzel Washington in “The Iceman Cometh” on Broadway.
But you know, the Iceman- he cameth, as they say. New York this morning is slush, ice and lingering snow. So Denzel and Eugene O’Neill’s famous characters like Hickey, Harry Hope, Parritt and Jimmy Tomorrow will have to wait until Friday to get going with this revival of the 1946 classic.
Of course, all the characters are drunk so they won’t notice anyway. What’s another day?
This new production, directed by George C. Wolfe, opens April 26th and co-stars Tammy Blanchard, Reg Rogers, Dakin Matthews, Bill Irwin, David Morse, and Colm Meaney (who’s actually Irish from Ireland). If it’s not great, we’re all in trouble!
