BAM Illustrated: Eugene O'Neill in Buenos Aires

Eugene O'Neill's seminal play The Iceman Cometh, now onstage at the BAM Harvey Theater, was first performed in the last decade of O'Neill's life. Years earlier, before he had any theatrical aspirations at all, O'Neill was 21, going nowhere in particular and found himself adrift in Buenos Aires.

Upon returning to New York, after another brief stint at sea, O'Neill started hanging out at the waterfront dive Jimmy the Priest's, which would serve as inspiration for the bar in The Iceman Cometh.
