The New York Times reports that producer Jeffrey Richards has announced that the current revival of Eugene O'Neill's DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS starring two-time Tony Award winner Brian Dennehy, stage and screen star Carla Gugino, and Tony nominee Pablo Schreiber, under the direction of Tony Award Winner Robert Falls will close May 24 at the ST. James Theatre after a run of 32 performances.

The production received wildly uneven notices, with some critics loving and others disliking the show explains The Times. DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS also came up empty-handed when Tony nominations were announced last week. Previews began April 14th, 2009 with an opening night which took place Monday, April 27th.

A master tragedian and intrepid explorer of the human psyche, Eugene O'Neill is considered one of the greatest American Playwrights of the 20th century. His accolades include four Pulitzer Prizes in Drama-more than any other playwright to date-and the Nobel Prize in Literature. Since O'Neill's death in 1953, his plays have remained popular on American and international stages and have become mainstays in literature courses throughout the world.
