    Jessica Lange is reteaming up with Ryan Murphy to return to Broadway in the revival of Eugene O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night”. Murphy will produce the show and Lange will reprise the role of Mary that she played on the West End. Gabriel Byrne and John Gallagher Jr. are also in the cast and previews are expected to begin March 31, 2016 with opening night April 19.

    Thank God Murphy isn’t directing it.  The first act would be dynamite, but the other three acts would have no focus and would generally suck.

    It looks like this will be another race between Jessica Lange and Cicely Tyson like last year’s Emmys, who also will be on Broadway this fall in The Gin Game.

    I wish I could see Lange in a live theater production.

    Producers are able to option the rights to plays that they plan to produce. He does not own the Eugene O’Neill catalogue. He is just “renting” the piece.
