Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director), in association with Ryan Murphy, is thrilled to announce the return to Broadway of Academy and Emmy Award winner Jessica Lange, Golden Globe winner and Tony Award nominee Gabriel Byrne and Tony Award winner John Gallagher Jr. in Long Day’s Journey Into Night by Eugene O’Neill, directed by Jonathan Kent as part of Roundabout Theatre Company’s 50th anniversary season.

Long Day’s Journey Into Night will begin preview performances on Thursday, March 31, 2016, and open officially on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).Long Day’s Journey Into Night will mark the fifth Broadway production in Roundabout’s 50th Anniversary season, which also includes Old Times and Noises Off at the American Airlines Theatre, and Thérèse Raquin and She Loves Me at Studio 54.


Two-time Academy Award winner and three-time Emmy Award winner Jessica Lange will play “Mary Tyrone,” following her critically acclaimed, Olivier Award-nominated performance in the role in the West End in 2000.Golden Globe winner and Tony Award nominee Gabriel Byrne will play “James Tyrone.” He last appeared on Broadway in Roundabout’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s A Touch of the Poet (2005).Tony Award winner John Gallagher Jr. will play “Edmond Tyrone.” He returns to Broadway following Jerusalem (2011), American Idiot (2010), Spring Awakening (2006) and Rabbit Hole (2006).


Elegant in its simplicity yet limitless in its scope, Long Day’s Journey Into Night is the tale of an ordinary summer’s day with extraordinary consequences. Drawing so heavily from the author’s personal history that it could only be produced posthumously, the story of the Tyrone family and their battle to unearth—and conceal—a lifetime of secrets continues to reveal itself to audiences as one of the most profound and powerful plays ever brought to the stage.Roundabout’s history with Eugene O’Neill, one of America’s most celebrated playwrights, dates back to 1983 with John Stix’s production of Ah, Wilderness, starring Philip Bosco, followed by Desire Under the Elms, directed by Terry Schreiber (1984), the Tony Award-winning revival of Anna Christie, directed by David Leveaux, starring Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson (1993), and A Touch of the Poet, directed by Doug Hughes, starring Gabriel Byrne (2005).The full cast and design team will be announced shortly.
