Long Description:


The Place:
Eugene O'Neill Theater
This theater was built in 1925...and was originally named after the 19th century actor Edwin Forrest. It's name was changed to the Coronet in 1945 and then changed to the Eugene O'Neill Theater in 1959. It seats around 1108 people. It was once owned by playwright Neil Simon.

Wikipedia (visit link) lists the major productions staged here including the current hit "The Book of Mormon" which has garnered this theater the title of having the largest box office during one week of productions.

The Person:
Eugene O'Neill
Eugene O'Neill (1888-1953) was an American playwright who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1936...and the Pulitizer for Drama in 1920, 1922, 1928 & 1957. "Long Day's Journey Into Night" is one of his best known works and was the winner of the 1957 Pulitzer. Most people who have heard about Charlie Chaplin's wife, Oona...probably don't realize that Oona was O'Neill's daughter...who he disowned when she married Chaplin.
