Passing the Torch – Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller

Eugene O’Neill’s last theatrical hurrah during his lifetime and Arthur Miller’s first great success happened together. The 1946-47 Broadway season, which featured both O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh and Miller’s All My Sons, in many ways marked a changing of the guard for the American Drama.

This fall the Eugene O’Neill Festival will explore O’Neill’s connections to the generation of playwrights that followed in his wake. Don’t miss your chance to see cast members preview scenes and enjoy an overview of the annual festival’s upcoming events!
