Steppenwolf's 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' headed to Broadway next year
Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? — which earned accolades in Chicago and Washington this winter (check out our A review) — will bow on Broadway next year. Its Oct. 13, 2012 opening marks the 50th anniversary of the drama's first turn on the Great White Way, when Uta Hagen and Arthur Hill hashed it out as Albee's most famous feuding alcohol-soaked marrieds, Martha and George. (Kathleen Turner and Bill Irwin portrayed the pair in the most recent 2005 revival.) This time around, the original Steppenwolf cast of Tracy Letts and Amy Morton (the writer and star, respectively, of Broadway's Tony winning August: Osage County)will take the leads, with Carrie Coon and Madison Dirks reviving their supporting roles.
