Photo Coverage: A Moon for the Misbegotten Opening Night

Having transferred from an acclaimed run at The Old Vic Theatre, A Moon for the Misbegotten began Broadway previews March 29 and opened on April 9th at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

Director Howard Davies and stars Eve Best, Colm Meaney, Kevin Spacey, Billy Carter, and Eugene O'Hare, are all reprising their roles from the Old Vic production. Two-time Oscar winner Spacey (The Usual Suspects, American Beauty) is also the Old Vic's Artistic Director. 

Known as acclaimed playwright Eugene O'Neill's only love story, A Moon for the Misbegotten is described in the press release as the story of "Josie Hogan (Best), a towering woman with a quick tongue and a ruined reputation who lives in a dilapidated Connecticut farmhouse with her conniving father, Phil (Meaney).  During one long moonlit night fueled by drink and lust, Josie's softer side is exposed through her feelings for Hogan's landlord Jim Tyrone (Spacey), and two implacable souls reveal to each other the grief, longing and unrequited love they've hidden from the world."
