Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Watch a brutal and unflinching portrait of a marriage falling apart at the all-new production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? that hits Broadway this spring!
Why Watch Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
In 1962, when Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? stunned its first Broadway audiences with its radical and provocative portrait of a marriage, Edward Albee instantly became the most important American playwright of his generation. Next spring, a new company of theatre giants takes on this iconic drama, nearly sixty years after its legendary Broadway premiere.
Two-time Tony Award and three-time Emmy Award winner Laurie Metcalf and Rupert Everett star in this bold new production, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello. This production also stars Russell Tovey and 2019 Olivier Award winner Patsy Ferran.
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? examines the complexities of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as guests, and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship, all fuelled by alcohol and insanity. Find out what marriage means to the two couples, and follow what happens at the Booth Theatre this spring
