In this rendition of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh, director Sidney Lumet uses his prodigious talents to stage the definitive edition of this great American classic. By weaving together the epic stories of a crowded room of drunks, the play creates a cross-section of a spoiled American Dream while offering a coherent image of addiction and the paralysis of those stuck in a 'pipe dream.'
