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‘s historic 50th anniversary revival of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? comes to Broadway to celebrate the play’s 50th anniversary. Straight from a sold out run at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf happily arrives on Broadway with its original cast intact.

Tracy Letts and Amy Morton (both of August: Osage County fame) star as George and Martha, two of the most iconic characters in theatre history who wile away their enjoyably miserable marriage by engaging in verbal contests of acerbic wit. Potentially the greatest American play ever written about the institution of marriage, Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? will leave you breathless, drained, fatigued, depressed…yet in a state of complete theatrical ecstasy. Drama just does not get more juicy than this.
