This fall, one of America’s most acclaimed theatre ensembles will take on one of the greatest plays of the 20th century when the Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? comes to Broadway to celebrate the play’s 50th anniversary.
Previews will begin on Thursday, September 27, 2012, at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street) with opening night set for Saturday, October 13, 2012, exactly 50 years to the day of the play’s original Broadway opening on Saturday, October 13, 1962.
Directed by Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon (Clybourne Park), the production will feature the original Steppenwolf cast led by Tracy Letts and Amy Morton, the playwright and the star of the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning smash hit August: Osage County. The two will face off as George and Martha, one of theatre’s most notoriously dysfunctional couples in Albee’s hilarious and provocative masterpiece. They will be joined by Carrie Coon and Madison Dirks as the unwitting young couple invited over to George and Martha’s for an unforgettable night of cocktails and crossfire.
