For the first time in its 50-year history, the Guthrie presents Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama – “America’s greatest play” – featuring Helen Carey, John Catron, Peter Michael Goetz and John Skelley. Critics and audiences are raving about this profoundly personal portrait of a family. MinnPost.com said “the cast is riveting” and the Pioneer Press raved “This is the first time the theater has ever performed this tough/tender play… And they have done it proud.” “Exceptional,” “unbelievable” and “beautiful” are just a few of the words our audience has used to describe the show. Don’t miss out – experience the Long Day’s Journey into Night yourself!
