Chicago's stage scene continues to thrive with the arrival of "The Iceman Cometh," April 22 - June 10, at the world-renowned Goodman Theatre. Don't miss a rare opportunity to see two-time Tony Award-winner Nathan Lane ("The Producers") take on the starring role as Theodore "Hickey" Hickman in this Eugene O'Neill masterpiece.
Fresh off an Emmy nod for his guest role in ABC's "Modern Family," Lane returns to the legitimate stage in an unlikely pairing with Goodman veteran Brian Dennehy that has critics buzzing with anticipation. Many Chicagoans will remember Dennehy for his 1990 role as Hickman in "Iceman" and his 2003 Tony-worthy performance in "Long Day's Journey into Night" - both Goodman productions.
Set in a 1920s Greenwich Village saloon, "Iceman" follows a slovenly group of wishful-thinking drunks on the quick path to nowhere. But when one of their own - Hickey - returns one day with an enlightened outlook on life and attempts to effect a similar change in his friends, you might find why some consider this work of comedy and tragedy to be one of America's all-time greats.
As the oldest and largest not-for-profit theatre in Chicago, Goodman Theatre is sure to appeal to the inner drama geek in all of us. You'll appreciate the storied history of a stage graced by the likes of Chita Rivera, Karl Malden, Geraldine Page, Rip Torn and Carla Gugino.
