Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
It’s been 58 years since Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? hit Broadway like a cultural thunderclap. But Edward Albee’s incendiary masterpiece of a marriage drama retains its power to shock and transport audiences. It’s also a daunting mountain to climb for brave and ambitious actors. The latest masters to take on Albee’s iconic couple, George and Martha, are two-time Tony and three-time Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf (Three Tall Women, A Doll’s House Part 2), and movie and stage icon Rupert Everett (The Judas Kiss, Blithe Spirit). They're steered through the play’s rapids and hairpin turns by two-time Tony-winning director Joe Mantello (Three Tall Women, The Boys in the Band). The cast also features Russell Tovey (A View from the Bridge) and recent Olivier Award winner Patsy Ferran in her Broadway debut.
