ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS…
IN ASSOCIATION WITH RYAN MURPHY
AS PART OF THE 50th ANNIVERSARY SEASON
LONG DAY’S JOURNEY
Starring Jessica Lange, Gabriel Byrne, Michael Shannon & John Gallagher Jr.
LIMITED ENGAGEMENT through June 26, 2016
A play by Eugene O’Neill
Directed by Jonathan Kent
Two-time Academy Award winner and three-time Emmy Award winner Jessica Lange will play “Mary Tyrone,” following her critically acclaimed, Olivier Award-nominated performance in the role on the West End in 2000. Golden Globe winner and Tony Award nominee Gabriel Byrne will play “James Tyrone.” He last appeared on Broadway in Roundabout’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s A Touch of the Poet (2005). Tony Award winner John Gallagher Jr. will play “Edmund Tyrone.” He returns to Broadway following Jerusalem (2011), American Idiot (2010), Spring Awakening (2006) and Rabbit Hole (2006).
Elegant in its simplicity yet limitless in its scope, Long Day’s Journey Into Night is the tale of an ordinary summer’s day with extraordinary consequences. Drawing so heavily from the author’s personal history that it could only be produced posthumously, the story of the Tyrone family and their battle to unearth—and conceal—a lifetime of secrets continues to reveal itself to audiences as one of the most profound and powerful plays ever brought to the stage.
