‘A work of monumental passion and epic sensuality,” trumpets the press release for the Broadway revival of Eugene O’Neill’s Desire Under the Elms. To me, this is the sexy show of the season.” But there are some limits, of course.They had me at “A.” And if you’ve seen the steamy commercial for the show, you know that if the Iceman got a front row seat, he’d probably cometh. “I tried to get Brian Dennehy to show his ass,” said Falls, impishly, “but he declined.” Now that would be a behemoth of a show.
