News   McSweeny to Direct Centerstage's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; Casting Announced
 
Complete casting has been announced for Baltimore Centerstage's upcoming production of the classic Edward Albee marriage drama Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Ethan McSweeny, who helmed the the Tony-nominated revival of The Best Man, will direct the production, which begins performances Oct. 22 with an official opening scheduled for Oct. 29. Performances will continue in the Head Theater through Nov. 30.

The cast will feature Andrew Weems (Inherit the Wind, London Assurance) as George, Deborah Hedwall (The Heidi Chronicles, Solomon's Child) as Martha, Leah Curney (Shakespeare Theatre's Major Barbara) as Honey and Erik Heger (roles at MTC and ACT) as Nick.

"When campus veterans George and Martha invite new arrivals Nick and Honey for late-night cocktails, the older couple becomes the host and hostess from hell as games and gossip give way to private grievances and painful secrets," according to press notes. "Albee's harrowing masterpiece is a wickedly funny and shamelessly in-your-face look at marital cold war turned hot."

Tickets, priced $10-$60, are available by visiting www.centerstage.org or by calling the (410) 332-0033.
