Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
On the campus of a small New England college, George (Tracy Letts) and Martha (Amy Morton) 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. Tracy Letts and Amy Morton faced off as one of theatre’s most notoriously dysfunctional couples in this revival of Edward Albee’s Tony Award-winning Best Play.

This is the fourth Broadway production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. The previous parings of George and Martha were Uta Hagen and Arthur Hill (1962); Colleen Dewhurst and Ben Gazzara (1976); and Kathleen Turner and Bill Irwin (2005). Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton starred in a 1966 film adaptation. This production began at Steppenwolf Theatre Co. in Chicago and played the Arena Stage in Washington, DC, before coming to New York.


  • This production opened on Broadway exactly 50 years to the day after the play’s original Broadway opening on October 13, 1962.
  • Columbia Masterworks issued an original cast recording of the piece in 1963, rare for a play. The album is on 4 LPs, running nearly 3 hours.
