Playbill will continue to update this list as more reviews come in.

The play follows the interactions between three women, named only A, B, and C, who represent different versions of the same woman in her 90s, 50s, and 20s. Albee directed the world premiere of the piece, hailed as his most personal work, at Vienna’s English Theatre in 1991.

The new production, produced by Scott Rudin, features sets by Miriam Buether, costumes by Ann Roth, lighting design by Paul Gallo, sound design by Fitz Patton, and hair and makeup by Luc Verschueren and Campbell Young Associates.
