In celebration of its 50th year anniversary, the critically acclaimed Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? will open on Broadway on Saturday, October 13, 2012 exactly 50 years to the date after the play’s original Broadway opening on Saturday, October 13, 1962.
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 as directed by Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon (Clybourne Park)
