Caldwell to get Monte Cristo

Four-time Tony-winning will be honored

NEW HAVEN — Four-time Tony-winning actress Zoe Caldwell will receive the Monte Cristo Award Oct. 18 during the fourth annual Eugene O’Neill Celebration at the O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford.

Caldwell starred as Mary Tyrone opposite Jason Robards Jr. in a 1976 production of O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” that played the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Kennedy Center in Washington. Production, which Robards directed, also starred Kevin Conway and Michael Moriarty.

Award is part of a celebration that will also feature a keynote address by playwright Lee Blessing; panel discussions by O’Neill scholars and David Hays, who designed the original production of “Long Day’s Journey Into Night”; and a reading of O’Neill’s one-act play “Ile.” Event runs Oct. 17-19.

Previous winners of the award, named for the playwright’s boyhood home in New London, Conn., are Robards, Edward Albee and August Wilson.

Caldwell received Tonys for “Slapstick Tragedy,” “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie,” “Medea” and “Master Class.” She is also a stage director and briefly headed the American Stratford Theater in Stratford, Conn.
