The show was nominated for several Tony Awards, but came away with a single win, for Bill Irwin's performance as George.
Woolf stars Irwin and Kathleen Turner as the warring married couple George and Martha. Both received admiring appraisals from critics, many of whom openly admitted in print that their expectations had been somewhat modest.
The Broadway revival is the first for the famous play since Albee himself directed it in 1976. Anthony Page directs and David Harbour and Mirelle Enos complete the cast. The show is playing at the Longacre Theatre.
