Virginia Woolf to Roar Its Last Sept. 4

News   Virginia Woolf to Roar Its Last Sept. 4 The praised new revival of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which opened on March 20 to largely positive notices, will end its run on Sept. 4. It will have played eight previews and 176 performances

The show advertised "Final Weeks" in the New York Times at one point in June.

Woolf 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.

Prior to its opening on Broadway, the production played a four-week tryout in Boston.

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.
