Polarity Ensemble Theatre brings a keen eye and a brimming heart to this revival of Eugene O'Neill's classic 1956 play. An epic excavation of familial regrets, O'Neill's semi-autobiographical tale follows a single, incredibly long day in the Tyrone household, revealing a mother's addiction, a father's dashed theatrical dreams, and the failures and dissolution of two sons. If there's a museum quality to Ashley Ann Wood's exquisite, dioramic set, the same can't be said of the performances. The first act feels breathless, but Bryan Breau and Eric Damon Smith ultimately spark like flint and steel as the Tyrone brothers. And Caroline Latta portrays mother Mary's drift into narcotic oblivion with understated craft. --Keith Griffith
