Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opened last night, Saturday, October 13, 2012, at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street), exactly 50 years to the day of the play's original Broadway opening on Saturday, October 13, 1962. Below, BroadwayWorld brings you images from the opening night curtain calls, featuring Carrie Coon, Tracy Letts, Amy Morton, Madison Dirks, director Pam MacKinnon and the legendary playwright himself, Edward Albee!
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 features 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 face off as George and Martha, one of theatre's most notoriously dysfunctional couples in Albee's hilarious and provocative masterpiece. They are 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.
