I saw that 1986 revival and hated how Jonathan Miller directed his cast to race through their lines and talk over one another.

It totally robbed O'Neill's dialogue of its poetry. To me, ''Long Day's Journey'' is a roundrobin of regrets and recrimations.

And part of the play's power is that the family members can't help but say things that hurt and harm one another, again and again.

I can believe in judicious edits, but expediency shouldln't be the point. O'Neill didn't call it ''LONG Day's Journey'' for nothing.
