Theatrical sparks flew when veteran Eugene O'Neill interpreters Jason Robards and Colleen Dewhurst joined forces in the celebrated 1973 revival of O'Neill's tender semi-autobiographical drama. In a towering performance, the great Robards portrays a cynical, self-hating alcoholic actor based on O'Neill's elder brother, Jamie. The majestic Colleen Dewhurst plays the earthy, gruff daughter of his scheming Irish tenant farmer (Ed Flanders), with whom the failed actor spends a soul-baring night of guilt-ridden confessions, tenderness, and absolution. Both Dewhurst and Flanders won Tony Awards for their performances. Written by
Originial production opened at the Bijou Theater in New York on May 2, 1957 and ran for 68 performances. This production opened at the Morosco Theater on December 29, 1973 and ran for 313 performances winning six Tonies. See more »

Superb reproduction of one of the triumphant productions of the American theater. This production single-handedly put A Moon for the Misbegotten among Eugene O'Neill's best-loved and most-produced plays. Great work by three great actors who are unfortunately no longer with us, Jason Robards, Colleen Dewhurst, and Ed Flanders.
