**** Highly Recommended **** I’d never seen “Long Day’s Journey into Night” until I saw it at the Court the other night. I think my reaction as I watched the play was fascinated horror. This family put the ‘dys’ in dysfunctional! Since “Long Day’s Journey into Night” is rather long, I thought my arthritic knees might distract me from the action, but that didn’t happen! I just couldn’t help myself, I had to know what they’d say or do next, so I give “Long Day’s Journey into Night” 4 Spotlights.
