William Hutt in ‘Long Day’s Journey’
He was one of our greatest actors, gifted with glossolalia, able to speak in tongues and characters but always distinctively himself. From Prospero to Lady Bracknell, Hutt had a vast range and clear focus. Why so admired? See for yourself, as in one of his most famous roles he plays James Tyrone opposite Tom McCamus as his son Edmund in O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night. This is taken from the Stratford Festival, and a rare artifact of that triumph.
