BWW Reviews: WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF
Stage Coach Theatre has decided to bring back Edward Albee's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? to Boise. This play won the 1963 Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Play; as well as being made into the 1966 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, George Segal, and Sandy Dennis.
This drama is a 3 hour production with 3 acts and 2 - 10 minute intermissions, so plan your night accordingly.
The story is about George and Martha and how their relationship is compared to what it used to be, so they decide to add some spice to their lives by playing games with others. (You get the sense they have done this before) George is a long-time professor at the university where Martha's father is the president. Their prey this night is Nick and Honey, a young couple. Nick is a new professor at the university, and he and Honey have not been married very long.
Jeffrey Thomson as George and Elizabeth Greeley as Martha are vicious to each other and their guests, Nick and Honey (Bryan Romano and Erin Edwards). See what games they get up to and if Nick and Honey are able to win, or even survive.
The actors deserve recognition for keeping up their pace for the length of the show. It is hard to keep the drama in a drama for that length of time, comedies are easy comparatively. If you want to see a drama be sure to get to Stage Coach Theatre before it closes.
