Episode 289. Mr. Brian Dennehy

Published by austin on

DENNEHYOlivier Award and two-time Tony Award-winning actor Brian Dennehy recently closed the epic Goodman Theatre production of Eugene O’Neill‘s The Iceman Cometh, which co-starred Nathan Lane as Hickey and ran for almost five hours. Brian made a long day even longer by agreeing to talk with us before one of his final matinees, and offers praise for his fellow actors, identifies the weather phenomenon O’Neill’s plays can best be described as, reveals what can happen when you succeed in an O’Neill play, shares who he thinks should be considered the Iron Man of the American theatre (the requirements for which sound strangely familiar), and laments the disturbing lack of 73-year-old vampires in the American cinema.
