Boasting a new 182-seat theater, American Stage Theatre Company brings vibrant acts to life for regional fans of live performance. The atmosphere at the Raymond James Theatre tingles with highly charged drama particles during the classic 20th-century play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Edward Albee's thrilling script tells the story of a husband and wife whose all-night cocktail party devolves into a marital mud-slinging match that exposes their resentments of each other and of female modernist authors. The yarn has garnered awards throughout the years, including the 1963 Tony Award and the 1984 Tony Danza Award for Stage Home Most in Need of a Housecleaning. Seating for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf is first-come, first-served. The play contains mature language and themes, so parents should leave wee ones at home and spare them a mouthful of soap.
Though there is a "pay what you can" option on Tuesday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. and $10 student rush tickets 30 minutes before the curtain, this Groupon offers a variety of evenings to choose from as well as guaranteed seating.
