A biting dark comedy and gut-wrenching psychological portrait of the breakdown of a marriage, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? has been a mainstay in American theater since it won the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and was immortalized in a film adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Written by the acclaimed Edward Albee, the story follows George and Martha, a middle-aged couple who invite a younger husband and wife over for drinks and, over the course of the evening, use their guests as pawns in increasingly cruel mind games, leading to a devastating revelation. Razor-sharp dialogue and incisive character portraits make Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? one for your theatrical bucket list. Learn More

The ensemble's performance was great. Nearly every actor plays two roles and it was nice to see everyone's range. The script and staging are very traditional, though, and although somewhat thought provoking, none of what we saw was innovative theatre in any way.

A spin on Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp new satire takes a jab at race and real estate in a Chicago neighborhood’s past and present. The play begins in 1959 as a black family moves into a white enclave. Act Two takes us back to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed.
