The Play About the Baby

type
  • Stage

If Edward Albee is one of America’s greatest living playwrights, he’s also our most demanding one. His outrageous new play concerns an older couple who actually convince two innocent parents that they haven’t had a baby. Albee presents his favorite theme (subverting our faith in a ”reality” he views as an anesthetizing veil) in a spare, somewhat easier to grasp form. Taking the night to haughty heights are the wickedly funny, dizzyingly decadent performances of Brian Murray and sublime Albee regular, queen of the stylized gesture, Marian Seldes. B+
