He made his Broadway playwriting debut with the sprawling family drama August: Osage County, which garnered Tracy Letts the Tony Award for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2008. This season, the stage veteran made his anticipated Broadway debut as an actor, inhabiting the role of George in the acclaimed revival of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Letts' unique take on the weary college professor, recoiled and ready to strike, proved a perfect match for Tony nominee Amy Morton's earthy Martha.
