Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

By Edward Albee

Directed by Deb Dagenais
Produced by Michelle Spanik

Recipient of The Tony Award for Best Play

By the evening’s end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years. With the play’s razor-sharp dialogue and the stripping away of social pretense,

Newsweek rightly foresaw Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? as “a brilliantly original work of art–an excoriating theatrical experience, surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire [that] will be igniting Broadway for some time to come.”
