‘Iceman,’ Starring Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy, Cometh to New York After All

Brooklyn Academy of Music teams with Scott Rudin to bring the 2012 Goodman Theater production to Gotham in 2015

The Goodman Theater’s much-lauded 2012 staging of Eugene O’Neill’s “The Iceman Cometh” has locked in a New York run that will play the Brooklyn Academy of Music in spring 2015 with its original cast — including Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy — intact.

BAM teams with Scott Rudin, whose legit outings this season including Daniel Craig starrer “Betrayal” and upcoming Denzel Washington topliner “A Raisin in the Sun,” on the staging. Rudin holds the Broadway rights to O’Neill’s 1946 play about the denizens of a Greenwich Village saloon.

Director Robert Falls’ production of “Iceman” won raves when it opened in Chicago in spring 2012 and stirred talked of an imminent New York transfer, but that never materialized.

Lane will play the salesman Theodore Hickman, with Dennehy on board as Larry Slade, a former anarchist. Cast also includes John Douglas Thompson, Lee Wilkof, Kate Arrington and Stephen Ouimette, among others.

No immediate commercial plans for the production have been made following the run at BAM, although the Brooklyn producer-presenter has yielded Broadway transfers in the past of shows including “Macbeth” starring Patrick Stewart and “Medea” with Fiona Shaw.
