No consolation for missing Long Day's Journey into Night but, if you reflect for a moment, you'll realise that you probably miss everything north and west of London for similar reasons of travel time (and expense). I notice you go to Chichester, but not to Sheffield or Manchester, for example. So this is just a rare instance of the West End being difficult for similar travel reasons.
Peer Gynt is another role which is difficult to sustain over a run, which is one reason for nowadays often splitting it into Young Peer, Peer, Old Peer, etc.. Michael Sheen played the whole role at the age of 24 in a four-hour RSC version and there was much concern for him that this was unwise for reasons of voice and stamina.

I'll probably see this there but at that length at this venue I'd be more worried about the audience lasting the course rather than the actors!
