The evening at Riverspace Arts in Nyack, NY, is scheduled to begin at 8 PM. Albee will discuss his 50-year career as one of the world's leading playwrights. Irwin, who won a Tony for his work in the revival of Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, also appeared in another Albee work on Broadway: as a replacement player in The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?
The series, according to press notes, allows audiences the chance to "listen in on a conversation with two great artists, both of whom know and understand one another's work, talking about their respective crafts in conversation with one another."
Albee's Peter and Jerry recently opened at Off-Broadway's Second Stage. The production is just one of a number of works by the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner to be seen on stages this season. The playwright — who turns 80 on March 12, 2008 — will also see his Me, Myself and I at the McCarter Theatre, The Sandbox and The American Dream at the Cherry Lane Theatre and Occupant at the Signature Theatre Company.
