"Virginia Woolf" in a snap: What it's really about
Directed by Tony nominee Pam MacKinnon (Clybourne Park), the critically acclaimed Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of EDWARD ALBEE'S WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? opened on Broadway on Saturday, October 13, 2012, exactly 50 years to the day after the play's original Broadway opening on Saturday, October 13, 1962. The production features the original Steppenwolf cast, led by Tracy Letts and Amy Morton, the playwright and the star of the Pulitzer and Tony-winning August: Osage County. Letts and Morton face off as George and Martha, one of theatre's most notoriously dysfunctional couples in Albee's hilarious and provocative masterpiece. They are joined by Carrie Coon and Madison Dirks as the unwitting young couple invited over to George and Martha's for a night of cocktails and crossfire.
