Photo Flash: First Look at The Edge Theater's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, Opening Tonight
The Edge Theater presents "Who''s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" tonight, July 24, through August 16 at 1560 Teller Street in Lakewood. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!
George, a professor at a small college, and his wife, Martha, have just returned home, drunk from a faculty party. Martha has invited a young couple to stop by for a nightcap. When Nick and Honey arrive the charade begins. The drinks flow and suddenly inhibitions melt. George and Martha face off as one of the theater's most notoriously dysfunctional couples in playwright Edward Albee's hilarious and harrowing masterpiece.
"Who''s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" won both the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962-''63 New York Drama Critics'' Circle Award for Best Play. The film adaptation was released in 1966, written by Ernest Lehman, directed by Mike Nichols, and starring Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, George Segal and Sandy Dennis. It was also selected for the 1963 Pulitzer Prize for Drama by that award's drama jury. However, the award's advisory board -- the trustees of Columbia University -- objected to the play's then-controversial use of profanity and sexual themes, and overruled the award's advisory committee, awarding no Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1963.
