There will not be a Broadway transfer for the Goodman’s production of ‘Iceman Cometh’ in the 2012/ 2013 season. For one reason, star Nathan Lane, who starred as the traveling salesman Theodore “Hickey” Hickman, has been hired for a recurring role in the fourth season of the CBS drama, “The Good Wives.” Lane plays “a bottom-line-obsessed manager attempting to cut costs to get the law firm back to financial health.
“‘Iceman Cometh,” was one of the most successful production at the Goodman and people from all over the Globe came to see it. Producer Scott Rudin [who granted the Goodman the rights to the play for Chicago only], still has the rights to “The Iceman Cometh” for another two years, so don’t dismiss this production yet.
