Metcalf and Rupert Everett return to Broadway in a new production of Edward Albee's classic drama of marital strife, directed by Joe Mantello. More…
From the show:
In 1962, when Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? stunned its very first Broadway audiences with its radical, provocative, and unflinching portrait of a marriage, Edward Albee instantly became the most important American playwright of his generation. The New York Times exclaimed that the new work “towers over the common run of contemporary plays.” At that season’s Tony Awards ceremony, the production racked up five wins, including Best Play and lead acting prizes for its two stars: Uta Hagen and Arthur Hill. Next spring, a new company of theatrical powerhouses take on this landmark drama nearly sixty years after its legendary Broadway premiere.
See it if I usually love this play, but I was aware that all four actors were acting which took me out of the play itself. First night of previews.
Don't see it if You mind a play that is close to 3 hours. Felt forced and overdone instead of organic and grounded in truth.
See it if If you like domestic dramas with quarreling couples that go on and on but there is flashy writing and acerbic humor. Laurie Metcalf-superb
Don't see it if if you don't like three hours plus drama that could have been told in two hours plus. Also the energy was lacking the night was there.
