WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
Revival of famed play hits New York for fiftieth anniversary.
Fifty years have passed since Edward Albee’s landmark play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? premiered, and a revival (which opened fifty years to the day of the play’s first performance) at the Booth Theater has given new life to the familiar tale. Coming to New York from Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater Company, the revival stars Amy Morton and Tracy Letts (whose Pulitzer Prize-winning play August: Osage County owes a bit to Albee’s work) as George and Martha, two bickering spouses who rope a young couple into their web of lies, games, and mistrust. Running until February, the revival has already garnered rave reviews, making it a must-see for any theater aficionado—if you can stomach it. — Mike Hicks
