Albee Steps in for Didion for May 14 Cabin Conversation

News   Albee Steps in for Didion for May 14 Cabin Conversation Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee has replaced novelist Joan Didion as the guest speaker for the Readers and Conversations series at The Cabin in Boise, ID.

Didion was originally announced to share her work on March 16, but rescheduled her appearance following the death of actress Natasha Richardson. (Richardson's mother, Vanessa Redgrave, starred in the Broadway production of Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking.)

The author and playwright has canceled her rescheduled May 14 appearance due to a brief hospitalization last week. Following her release, Didion was advised not to travel, according to Cabin artistic and executive director Paul Shaffer.

The Cabin states that all tickets for Didion's discussion will be honored for the 7:30 PM event with Albee.

Edward Albee's work includes his Tony Award-winning dramas Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and The Goat or Who Is Sylvia?. He received Tony nominations for The Ballad of the Sad Café, Tiny Alice, A Delicate Balance, Seascape, and was awarded a Tony for Lifetime Achievement in 2005. His plays A Delicate Balance, Three Tall Women, and Seascape were each awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Albee has also been honored with the Gold Medal in Drama from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts.
