Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Broadway

$67.00 - $132.00 (Student Rush $37 w/valid student ID. First come, first served on day of performance)

On the campus of a small New England college, George and Martha invite a new professor and his wife home for a nightcap. As the cocktails flow, the young couple finds themselves caught in the crossfire of a savage marital war where the combatants attack the self-deceptions they forged for their own survival. Steppenwolf ensemble members Tracy Letts and Amy Morton face off as one of theatre's most notoriously dysfunctional couples in Albee's hilarious and harrowing masterpiece.



The Broadway opening will mark exactly 50 years to the date after the play's original Broadway opening on Saturday, October 13, 1962. This production of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? originally ran at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company (December 13, 2010 - February 13, 2011) and then transferred to Washington, D.C.'s Arena Stage (February 25 - April 10, 2011)

Legendary playwright Edward Albee rarely attends Broadway productions because much of what gets produced is 'usually junk,' he tells Tracy Smith in an interview with CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH Charles Osgood, which was broadcast this morning, Jan. 27 (9:00 AM, ET). He also says he lies on his Tony ballots, too. Read Albee's full Q&A with CBS Sunday Morning HERE.
