Eugene O'Neill's monumental Long Day's Journey Into Night traces a day in the lives of the Tyrone (read O'Neill) family during a 1912 summer day from 8:30 a.m. to midnight. O'Neill used his own personal and painful frame of reference, writing the play in 1940 and not releasing it until after his death in 1956.
South Florida will see one of the very few productions of a play by Eugene O'Neill this season when New Theatre brings to its stage Long Day's Journey Into Night.
The revival of New Theatre's landmark, Carbonell Award-nominated 1994 production of Eugene O'Neill's greatest play will star Carbonell-winning actor John Felix in his New Theatre debut as James Tyrone and New Theatre veteran Sally Levin, also nominated for a Carbonell Award for this role, as Mary Tyrone. Carbonell Award winner Barbara Lowery, who made her New Theatre directing debut last season with A Town Like Irving, will helm a stellar cast that also features Euriamis Losada as Edmond, and Keith Cassidy as Jamie, and Francesca Toledo as Kathleen in their New Theatre debut.
The reviews of New Theatre's production in South Florida's press were absolute raves:
"Meticulousness, intelligence, taste...The New Theatre effort is a triumph..."
(The Miami Herald, 11/17/94)
"The evening packs an emotional wallop."
(Miami New Times, 11/24/94)
"...A mesmerizing, dramatic pinnacle...the season's theater triumph."
