  • "Told in context.": Dorothy Day's Previously Unpublished Reminiscence of
           Eugene O'Neill
    • Abstract: On March 21, 1957, at a Wednesday Mass, Dorothy Day's mind had begun to wander from the holy sacraments. Eugen O'Neill had passed away a few years earlier, and that morning, recalling "his black despair and tragic death," Day prayed for the deceased suitor of her youth, while acknowledging the fact that he'd conveyed "a lack of trust [in religion] which would almost make him refuse to believe if he were faced with the Beatific vision."1 By this time Day (1897–1980) was the renowned founder of the Catholic Worker Movement; in 2000 she would be designated a "Servant of God" by the Holy See, the first of four steps toward canonization.2 Day had remained relatively discreet about her brief but storied dalliance forty ...

  • Fitzi, True-Believer: The Legacy of M. Eleanor Fitzgerald
    • Abstract: The rich history of the Provincetown Players, with Eugene O'Neill its champion playwright, is due in no small part to the fascinating and often complex lives of the individuals who formed this seminal group that brought modernity and national identity to American theater. They came to Provincetown by way of Greenwich Village from all parts of the country, most leaving their late-Victorian upbringings to experience the freedom advertised in bohemian enclaves. They were primarily writers and visual artists, whose love of (and inexperience with) producing theater allowed them to experiment with new aesthetic approaches, green-lighting topics, narratives, and characters that had yet to populate American stages.The ...

  • The Pen and The Brush: Eugene O'Neill, Visual Artists, and Women Muses
    • Abstract: This is what the painter does, and the poet, the speculative philosopher, the natural scientist, each in his own way. Into this simplified and lucid image of the world and its formation, he places the center of gravity of his emotional life, to attain the peace and serenity that he cannot find within the narrow confines of swirling experience.To afford a perspective on the interchanges among Eugene O'Neill, artists and their women muses, we can look to a psychologist who did much research on creative intelligence, especially with artists: Dr. Howard Gardner. A Harvard cognitive psychologist and author of Multiple Intelligences, Gardner draws upon the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi to discuss the social ... Read More

  • An Exorcism on The Outside, or Looking into Trifles—Before Breakfast:
           Geopathic Crises in the Plays of Eugene O'Neill and Susan Glaspell
    • Abstract: Affirming that the years Eugene O'Neill spent with the Provincetown Players impelled his playwriting career enormously and allowed the future Nobel Prize winner to experiment with form and content in ways he could not have dreamed of anywhere else in New York at that time seems now commonplace. Eileen J. Herrmann and Robert M. Dowling's collection Eugene O'Neill and His Early Contemporaries (2011) sufficiently illustrates how "the bohemians, progressives, radicals, and leftists with whom O'Neill came in contact in early adulthood directly or indirectly impacted his work," allowing O'Neill to overthrow melodrama, dismantle the boundaries of Broadway realism, and freely play with modernist approaches to acting and ...

  • Harlots and Hunted: Prostitutes in O'Neill's Work
    • Abstract: I've got every respect for a good honest whore.Trudy Drucker has observed that "the Gold-Hearted Whore" is one of Eugene O'Neill's dramatic stereotypes, and indeed the noble prostitute is recognizable in various literary works from characters like Liza in Dostoyevsky's Notes from the Underground and Sonia in Crime and Punishment to Reba and Everbe in Faulkner's novels Sanctuary and The Reivers, respectively.1 However, Drucker points to O'Neill's "inability to distinguish virgin from whore [which] reflects the generally faulty sense of identity shared by most of his women." This claim about an "inability to distinguish virgin from whore" in O'Neill's work proves specious when examined closely, though many readers ... Read More

  • Finding a Home: Salome Jens on Performing O'Neill

Dan McGovern, president of the board of the Eugene O'Neill Foundation, Tao House, conducted this interview of Jens on December 5, 2016.Salome, I am delighted and honored to have the opportunity to interview you. My wife, Carolyn, and I were privileged to see you in the Circle in the Square's historic production of A Moon for the Misbegotten on its Los Angeles tour in 1969. For us you will always be Josie Hogan.You have had such a rich and varied career in movies and television, appearing in dozens of productions. However, the stage appears to have ... Read More

  • Stately Women in Retrospect: Actresses Jenny Bacon and Joan MacIntosh
           Recall Their Roles as Sara and Deborah Harford in Ivo van Hove's More
           Stately Mansions
    • Abstract: Acclaimed Flemish director Ivo van Hove had two shows on Broadway during the 2015–16 season and won a Tony Award for A View from the Bridge, but when he made his directorial debut in the United States with the 1997 New York Theatre Workshop production of More Stately Mansions, critical reception was mostly negative and anything but mild. Variety magazine concluded that "American audiences [are] likely to find van Hove's indulgences gratingly pretentious and too spot-on obvious." Ben Brantley of the New York Times dismissed the effort, claiming "the production sticks blatantly to the surface." New York Magazine reviewer John Simon walked out after the first act, declaring that van Hove had "reduced Mansions to ... Read More

  • Reflections on the "Second Girl"
    • Abstract: When I was first cast as Cathleen in Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night at the Roundabout Theater Company (2016), I had a bit of a freak-out. My first thought: what the hell am I going to do alongside all of these super famous and incredible actors' (The cast was comprised of Jessica Lange, Gabriel Byrne, Michael Shannon, and John Gallagher Jr.: all legends and dream collaborators in my eyes. I mean . . . come on!) My second thought: don't say anything stupid. My third thought: what is the purpose of Cathleen's presence in the play anyway' And will I, one lucky duck, be able to embody that' I knew O'Neill, being O'Neill, one of the greatest American playwrights of all time, wouldn't just add a ...

  • Women Possessed: A Life of Eugene O'Neill by Arthur and Barbara Gelb
           (review)
    • Abstract: In a sense, the late Barbara and Arthur Gelb spent sixty years preparing for this volume, beginning in 1956, just as Long Day's Journey Into Night was premiering on Broadway, when they watched and taped an interview with Carlotta Monterey O'Neill conducted by Seymour Peck for the New York Times.1 As they explain in this volume, it was at the Peck interview that the Times's distinguished drama critic Brooks Atkinson secured Monterey's agreement to be interviewed by assistant drama critic Arthur Gelb and his wife and collaborator with a view toward writing a biography of O'Neill. The result, after numerous interviews, not only with Monterey but with more than 400 other sources, was their O'Neill (1962), the first ... Read More

  • Editor's Foreword Long Day's Journeys and Deposed Emperors
    • Abstract: Might it be a register of our current cultural moment that several productions of Long Day's Journey Into Night—arguably O'Neill's darkest play—were performed this past year, four of which are reviewed in this edition of the EOR' Or that O'Neill's expressionistic portrait of a despotic ruler meeting his demise (The Emperor Jones) in the Irish Repertory Theatre's revival felt all the more poignant as our first black president left the White House after divisive elections' Or, when transferred across the Atlantic to the cavernous Armory, that Richard Jones's neon production of The Hairy Ape felt less like a period piece and more of a current snapshot of how the average Yank clashes with a culture obsessed with Fifth ...

  • Long Day's Journey Into Night by William Hayes (review)
    • Abstract: The Palm Beach Dramaworks presented a deeply moving production of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night at the Don and Ann Brown Theatre, West Palm Beach, Florida. Directed by William Hayes, the accomplished actors gave one of the best performances of this classic that I have ever seen. From the bright sunlight of the cheerful morning to the dark gray foggy night, the Tyrone family revealed its suffering and pain with extraordinary realism.Outstanding among the cast was Maureen Anderman playing the sick Mary Tyrone, who begins the day with brightness and cheer. However, as the day goes by, she expresses fear and anxiety as she slowly drifts into narcotic-induced reveries. Before her loss of control, Mary ... Read More

  • Long Day's Journey Into Night by Jonathan Kent (review)
    • Abstract: A soft summer breeze blows an oversized, diaphanous curtain inward, billowing like the promise of an early summer day as patrons take their seats. Cold blue light and gentle sounds of the surf suggest the sea outside. French doors offer glimpses of the sun—and, soon, fog beyond. We settle in, for this production will be three hours and forty minutes long. In stark contrast to recent lean productions, where more than an hour had been trimmed (London, 2013 [see EOR 34.1]; New York, 2003), this Long Day's Journey (directed by Jonathan Kent) staged O'Neill's masterpiece almost in its entirety. The intact script gives the time and emotional space required to spiral downward; we watch this vexed family only to see hints ... Read More

  • Long Day's Journey Into Night by Jeanie Hackett (review)
    • Abstract: The Geffen Playhouse production of Long Day's Journey into Night marks the fourth time actors Alfred Molina and Jane Kaczmarek have performed together onstage. Molina enjoys a celebrated reputation as a stage actor, although he has not taken on Eugene O'Neill until now. Kaczmarek, popularly known for her television sitcom work, asserts her talent in this poignant interpretation of O'Neill's play. The two are a powerful force as the Tyrone patriarch and matriarch, presenting a surprisingly affectionate family whose love succumbs to substance abuse and misfortune. Under the direction of Jeanie Hackett, who is familiar to Los Angeles theater audiences for her classical productions, this version emphasizes the ... Read More

  • Long Day's Journey Into Night by Derron Wood (review)
    • Abstract: "I've always hated this town and everyone in it," Mary Tyrone (Anne Flammang) reminds her son Edmund (Victor Chiburis) in the first act of Long Day's Journey Into Night. The "hated" town is New London, Connecticut, and "everyone in it" is its clannish Yankee inhabitants. Since its world premiere in 1956, notoriously unsanctioned by the author prior to his death, many hundreds of thousands of people have heard Mary speak these words. They are meant to evoke pity and dread. But during the Flock Theatre's production at Monte Cristo Cottage, Mary's unvarnished admission of contempt had transformed into a laugh line. This time, the latest generation of those despised townspeople were seated just a few feet away.It was ... Read More

  • O'Neill (Unexpected) by Alex Roe (review)
    • Abstract: After reading Bound East for Cardiff, the Provincetown Players, according to Susan Glaspell, "knew what we were for." One hundred years later, the Metropolitan Playhouse marked the centenary of O'Neill productions with the one-act Recklessness and the full-length satire Now I Ask You, two plays that O'Neill wrote in that same prophetic year of 1916 but that were never performed in his lifetime and very rarely ever since. One would not expect to honor O'Neill with these rejects from his salad days, but the imaginative director and the talented ensemble of actors at the Metropolitan created a lot of unexpected resonance in this refreshing and thoroughly enjoyable production. While it would be easy to highlight the ... Read More

  • The Hairy Ape by Richard Jones (review)
    • Abstract: When the Old Vic's production of The Hairy Ape, which premiered in October of 2015 (reviewed by Jean Chothia in EOR 37.2), moved to New York it became a co-production with the Park Avenue Armory that required significant restaging and recasting. Director Richard Jones succeeds in both aspects, with the gritty and charismatic Bobby Cannavale leading the ensemble as Yank, and a visual spectacle of dioramic sets and site-specific staging that fills the 55,000-square-foot armory drill hall.O'Neill's 1922 episodic drama—a tragic story he labeled a "comedy"—is a fascinating blend of genres. "I don't think the play as a whole can be fitted into any of the current 'isms,'" he wrote to Kenneth Macgowan after finishing the ... Read More

  • The Emperor Jones by Ciarán O'Reilly (review)
    • Abstract: This reprise of the Irish Rep's triumphant 2009 production of The Emperor Jones in its newly renovated space on West 22nd Street feels like more than just a restaging. Eight years ago, when America's first great theatrical role for a black actor was being revived, America's first black president had just begun what seemed a hopeful new era in the nation's history. In 2017 that hope has given way to an assertion of self-aggrandizing American power, led by an autocrat whose unlikely rise is the result of cynical guile, brazen charisma, and the luck of circumstance. Though set ostensibly in Haiti ("an island in the West Indies"), this Jones reminds us that O'Neill is once again the playwright for a new century ... Read More

  • The Iceman Lab by Julia Sirna-Frest et al. (review)
    • Abstract: In its two-season treatment of some of his weightiest drama, the Brooklyn-based Target Margin Theater sought to fire Eugene O'Neill out of the canon and into the new millennium. In its fracturing of The Iceman Cometh under the title The Iceman Lab, different directors each took on one of the play's four acts, on a schedule of one piece per evening, except for a combined performance of all four on two Saturdays. This full version, discussed here, ran five hours with intermissions, more than an hour longer than the original play, and provided these artists a rich vein of dramatic material to be mined rather than a masterpiece to be venerated. O'Neill's 1940 script held its own pretty well against the Target Margin's ... Read More

  • Editor's Foreword
    • Abstract: Arthur and Barbara Gelb's final biography of Eugene O'Neill, titled By Women Possessed, appeared almost exactly one year ago. This edition of the Eugene O'Neill Review might be seen as a complement to that volume. Conceived shortly before the biography was published, "The Women in O'Neill's World" extends the Gelbs' conviction that female relatives, lovers, acquaintances, colleagues, and actors exerted a vital influence on the dramatist and his canon.The essays in this special issue of the Eugene O'Neill Review fall roughly into three categories, although overlap is inevitable. The first group focuses on the female friends and family members who shaped O'Neill as an artist and a man, helped further his career in ... Read More
