Edward Albee’s classic drama Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? returns to Broadway on September 27, starring Tracy Letts and Amy Morton. Directed by Pam MacKinnon, the Steppenwolf Theatre Company production officially opens at the Booth Theatre on October 13.
In addition to Letts as George and Morton as Martha, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? stars Carrie Coon as Honey and Madison Dirks as Nick. The cast will reprise their roles on Broadway after starring in the production at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago and Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.
Albee’s legendary play tells the story of George and Martha (Letts and Morton, respectively) a verbally and physically abusive couple who invite a younger work colleague (Dirks) and his wife (Coon) over for drinks. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? originally opened at the Billy Rose Theatre on Broadway in 1962, starring Uta Hagen as Martha and Arthur Hill as George. The play was revived on Broadway most recently in 2005, starring Kathleen Turner as Martha and Tony winner Bill Irwin as George.
