Anyone curious to find out more about playwright Edward Albee's new work, The Play About the Baby , which premiered in London earlier this year but has yet to be seen in the U.S., may want to catch the dramatist's appearance at New York's Great Hall of Cooper Union (7 East 7th St at 3rd Ave.), Dec. 9 at 6:30 PM.
Presented by the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, the chat will have Albee talking about Baby and his career with longtime supporter, New York Times writer Mel Gussow.
Albee is the author of such plays as The Zoo Story , Tiny Alice , Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf , A Delicate Balance and Three Tall Women. Albee has received a critical resurgence in recent years, after many years of disfavor.
