Quotable Quote:

"I think it's the most personal piece of writing I've ever worked on. I've never seen somebody so intricially lay out the devastation of their own existance and the existance of their family. It's so fascinating to me how much empathy Eugene O'Neill had for his family despite the suffering he endured because of them."Shannon on Long Day's Journey Into Night to Broadway.com, 4/16
