Absolutely loved Hughie! Set was incredible...so realistic. Brian Dennehy is one of the great actors of our time. Didn't care so much for Krapp, although I can appreciate the subleties and Brian's amazing character. Krapp would have worked better for me with a much closer seat. Middle to rear mezzanine was too far to fully grasp what was happening on stage.
Over the past two decades, legendary actor Brian Dennehy has thrilled Chicago audiences with unforgettable productions, including Long Day’s Journey into Night, the Iceman Cometh and Death of a Salesman. Now Dennehy returns to Goodman Theatre in two plays by the most renowned playwrights of the 20th century: Eugene O’Neill and Samuel Beckett. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see two-time Tony Award-winner Brian Dennehy—one of the country’s finest actors of the stage and screen—in this extraordinary double bill.
In Hughie, high-rolling gambler Erie (Brian Dennehy) and Hughie, the credulous night clerk at his apartment building, were confidants. Hughie admired Erie for his bold lifestyle and Erie considered Hughie his good luck charm. When Hughie dies unexpectedly, Erie's luck changes for the worse and he finds himself in dire straights. Then Erie meets the new night clerk (Joe Grifasi), who reminds him enough of Hughie that he takes the gamble his luck is about to change.
Krapp's Last Tape is Samuel Beckett's classic one-act, one-man show. Every year on his birthday, self-absorbed Krapp records the important—and the banal—moments of the last year. As he prepares to record a new tape on his 69th birthday, he begins to listen to his archives. This immersion in his own history leads Krapp to question with growing regret whether his present lives up to his past.
The running time for Hughie/Krapp's Last Tape is approximately two hours, including one 15-minute intermission.
