Robert Falls will direct Eugene O'Neill's Hughie, in which Dennehy plays a high-rolling gambler, while Joe Grifasi plays the night clerk at his apartment building. Jennifer Tarver will direct Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape, with Dennehy as the titular character who every year on his birthday, records the important -- and the banal --moments of the last year. These conjoined productions were first performed to universal acclaim at Canada's Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Summer 2008.
In addition to Lee, the creative team includes Patrick Clark (costume design), Robert Thomson (lighting design), and Richard Woodbury (sound design).
Dennehy starred in the Goodman's recent Broadway production of Desire Under the Elms, and won Tonys for Death of a Salesman (which also garnered him an Olivier Award) and Long Day's Journey Into Night. Additional Broadway credits include Inherit the Wind and Translations. He has numerous film and television credits, earning two Golden Globe Awards and six Emmy nominations.
