A biting dark comedy and gut-wrenching psychological portrait of the breakdown of a marriage, Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? has been a mainstay of American theater since winning the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play. Later immortalized in a film adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the play was written by the acclaimed Edward Albee. The story follows George and Martha, a middle-aged couple who invite a younger husband and wife over for drinks and, over the course of the evening, use their guests as pawns in increasingly cruel mind games, leading to a devastating revelation. Razor-sharp dialogue and incisive character portraits make Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? one for your theatrical bucket list. Now you can see a new production of this classic starring two of Houston's favorite actors -- Phillip Lehl and Kim Tobin-Lehl -- at Studio 101.
