Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

What the popular press said...

"The first necessary ticket of the fall Broadway season, establishes beyond question that at the half-century mark, an age when many plays, not to mention many people, are showing signs of flab, Mr. Albee's scalding drama of marital discord still retains the bantam energy and strong bite of its youth. "
Charles Isherwood for NY Times

"The production is powerful, revealing and as painful as a fresh wound."
Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

"Lost none of its power to keep an audience on edge."
Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"Albee's ferocious and funny masterpiece couldn't be better served. ... The chance to see a great play in a great production doesn't come along all that often. Here's your chance."
Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

"An extremely entertaining play, and this production allows the audience to enjoy it."
Robert Feldberg for The Record

"Marriage as a blood sport is hopelessly addictive; and as portrayed here, we are glued to the carnage."
Roma Torre for NY1

"As much as I enjoyed seeing the play again and admire the performances by Letts and Morton, ... this production seem a bit flat..."
Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

"The sensational production is flawlessly cast and directed with unerring precision."
David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Entirely engrossing production."
Steven Oxman for Variety
