American Conservatory Theater
No one sits through Eugene O'Neill unless they like watching gloriously poetic slow-motion train wrecks. Or unless it's their last chance to see American Conservatory Theater core company member Marco Barricelli, that matinee idol who kept the female--and probably male--subscribers fanning themselves with their programs. An excellent actor, he played James Tyrone, the older version of the character he played in 1999's Long Day's Journey into Night. We caught his very last performance before he left for the East Coast, but the ever-humble Barricelli took only one bow, as usual.
