Last chance to catch Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning A Delicate Balance at NC's Charlotte Repertory Theatre. Albee's drama, which opened Mar. 4, tells of a neurotic Connecticut family whose lives are disrupted by the arrival of some house guests who show absolutely no signs of leaving.
Charlotte Rep veteran Mary Lucy Bivins and Geddeth Smith play the married couple at the center of Balance, joined by Kathleen Butler, as alcoholic Claire, Terry Loughlin, Katherine Harrison.
Steve Umberger, founder and artistic director of the Rep, stages Balance, which runs through March 15.
The original 1966 production starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn. The 1973 film starred Katharine Hepburn, Paul Scofield and Lee Remick. A 1996 Broadway revival of A Delicate Balance, starring Rosemary Harris, Elaine Stritch, and George Grizzard, was a critical and popular success. In addition, a revival of the play starring Maggie Smith and Eileen Atkins opened Oct. 1997 in London's West End to much acclaim.
Other plays by Edward Albee include Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Death of Bessie Smith and Fragments.
