The Iceman Cometh

The fact that The Iceman Cometh, by Eugene O’Neill, was a huge, sold-out hit at the Brooklyn Academy of Music proves that serious theatre is alive in the U.S.  (Iceman closed March 15.)  This big play of love and hate, forgiveness and punishment, self-knowledge and self-delusion, is also unmistakably a play of ideas.  The fact that Charlie Rose devoted nearly an entire show to it is encouraging to those of us who believe in theatre as a force toward a better world.
