NEW YORK (AP) -- Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy will star in a revival of Eugene O'Neill's "The Iceman Cometh" in Brooklyn in 2015.

The Brooklyn Academy of Music said Tuesday the pair of stars, who had been in an acclaimed Goodman Theatre version of the play in 2012 in Chicago, will present the five-hour work for a six-week run in the BAM Harvey Theater from Feb. 5 through March 15.

The director is Robert Falls, artistic director of the Goodman, and the show is produced by BAM and Scott Rudin. Lane was last on Broadway in "The Nance" and Dennehy was in "Desire Under the Elms."

The play features a collection of down-and-out failures, prostitutes and pimps, sunken ex-revolutionists and disgraced former soldiers who gather in a saloon in 1912.
