Academy and Emmy Award winner Jessica Lange will return to Broadway in a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night.”
Previews for the limited engagement production will begin March 31, 2016, with an April 19 opening at the American Airlines Theatre.
Joining Lange in the Jonathan Kent-directed production will be Tony nominee Gabriel Byrne (TV’s “In Treatment”) and Tony winner John Gallagher Jr. (“Spring Awakening”). The three make up the fictional Tyrone family, who reveal a sea of family secrets on an ordinary summer’s day.
It’s Lange second time with the material, after playing the role of Tyrone matriarch Mary in an acclaimed production in London’s West End in 2000.
"Long Day’s Journey Into Night" will be part of Roundabout Theater Company’s 50th season, which also includes Keira Knightley and Clive Owen making their Broadway debuts in two new productions, an Andrea Martin-lead “Noises Off” revival and “How I Met Your Mother” star Josh Radnor alongside Tony-winner Laura Benanti in a revival of “She Loves Me.”
Lange’s longtime ‘American Horror Story’ collaborator Ryan Murphy will also co-produce the revival alongside the Roundabout Theater Company.
