The Iceman Cometh: A Historic Soundscape Sets The Tone For An American Tragedy

Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh, a masterwork of empty dreams, is in its fourth Broadway revival, starring Denzel Washington in the leading role. George C. Wolfe’s production of the 1946 play was nominated for eight Tony Awards, including nods in four design categories. Here, veteran sound designer and longtime Wolfe collaborator Dan Moses Schreier—who earned his fifth Tony nomination on this production—talks about crafting a palette of historic music recordings and vintage-inspired sound effects that evoke 1912 Manhattan as the industrial revolution encroaches on the “pipe dreams” of the downtrodden deadbeats living in Harry Hope’s seedy Greenwich Village saloon.
