The actors and artistic team responsible for Goodman Theatre's acclaimed 2012 revival of Eugene O'Neill's "The Iceman Cometh" will take their show on the road in 2015.
The Brooklyn Academy of Music, together with producer Scott Rudin, announced Wednesday that it will remount Goodman's revival -- with its original Chicago cast and artistic team -- for a six-week, off-Broadway run beginning Feb. 5, 2015, at the BAM Harvey Theater.
Goodman artistic director Robert Falls will once again helm the production, which features Falls' longtime collaborator and Goodman artistic associate Brian Dennehy as Larry Slade and Nathan Lane as the titular iceman, Theodore "Hickey" Hickman.
The production, which opened to near universal acclaim, broke box office records to become the most successful show in the theater's history, Goodman representatives said in a prepared statement. Rumors of a Broadway transfer surfaced last year, but the remount never materialized.
Falls described the upcoming East Coast run as yet another opportunity to revisit an O'Neill masterwork.
"Our production in Chicago was one of the highlights of my tenure at the Goodman," said Falls in a prepared statement. "We're thrilled to share it with New York audiences."
The play features a collection of down-and-out failures, prostitutes and pimps, sunken ex-revolutionists and disgraced former soldiers who gather in a saloon in 1912.
