Denzel Washington will return to Broadway this spring in a new production of Eugene O'Neill's drama The Iceman Cometh.

George C. Wolfe will direct the play at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, with previews beginning March 22, 2018. Opening night is set for April 26. Additional information is still to be announced.

The play is set at Harry Hope's saloon, where drunks and dreamers are celebrating the arrival of Hickey, whose presence always ensures a good time. When Hickey finally arrives with a new outlook on life, his attempts to help his old friends lead to a devastating series of events.
