Following his thrilling revivals of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and My Fair Lady at the Lyric Stage, director Scott Edmiston turns to Edward Albee’s towering masterpiece, the fiercely funny and intensely painful Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.  The play thrillingly examines the breakdown of a middle-aged couple, who mercilessly draw a naïve younger pair into the bitter psychological cage match of their frustrated marriage.

“An electric evening in the theater!  A bitter, keening lament, punctuated by comedy, shot through with savage irony.”  — NY Times
