The Geffen celebrates the 60th anniversary of the hilarious and harrowing play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” arguably Edward Albee’s most famous and most vicious masterpiece. Previews started on April 19 at Geffen Playhouse (the Gil Cates Theater). Opening night was Thursday, April 28, 2022….but you still have time to catch this legendary play through May 29, 2022 (it’s been extended). I reviewed the show (which was fantastic).

George and Martha, the American theater’s most notoriously dysfunctional couple, have invited the young and naive Nick and Honey over for drinks. What begins as harmless patter escalates to outright marital warfare, with the provincial newcomers caught in the crossfire. 

The cast includes Aimee Carrero (The Portuguese Kid, What Rhymes with America) as Honey, Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal, Neil LaBute’s bash) as Martha, Graham Phillips (13: The Musical, The Good Wife) as Nick and Zachary Quinto (Star Trek franchise, The Boys in the Band) as George.
