Producers of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which began performances on Thursday, September 27, 2012, at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street), have announced a student rush policy for the critically-acclaimed Broadway revival.
One of America's most acclaimed theatre ensembles takes on one of the greatest plays of the 20th century in the Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? 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.
Tickets can be purchased at Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
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.
