Why See Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Broadway ShowsPlaysStars on Stage PrestigeDrama

Metcalf, Everett, Tovey and Ferran!

Edward Albee's theatrical titan Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf has returned to Broadway with a whole host of award-winning stars leading the cast. Prestigious British actor Rupert Everett joins Tony winner Laurie Metcalf (A Doll's House, Part Two) in this intoxicating drama. 

Originally debuting in 1962, Albee's double award-winning masterpiece has become one of the globe's most iconic plays. Having enjoyed a feature-length film adaptation, as well as several revivals (the most recent of which ran in 2012) Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf is a scorching portrait of a disintegrating and dangerous marriage. 

Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, this 2020 revival will also star British favorite Russell Tovey and 2019's Olivier Award Winning actress Patsy Ferran.

What is Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf about?

After a party at the university where each of them works, George and Martha arrive home with a younger couple, Nick and Honey, in tow. Invited by Martha and to the chagrin of George, what starts out as intriguing observation soon sees Nick and Honey drawn into Martha and George's terrifying dynamic. Now in the middle of a marital breakdown, this unlikely quartet are heading to the battlefield, who will survive?
