Centered on the self-destructive James Tyrone, the character modeled on O’Neill’s own older brother, and the passionate and lonely Josie Hogan, A Moon for the Misbegotten has been hailed as a masterpiece by O’Neill and one of the great works of the American stage. A haunting exploration of despair, love, and salvation got by “human grace,” O’Neill “distilled his theme to its purest form,” according to Frank Rich in the New York Times, “and then transcended it.”
