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

Though not on quite the same high plane as Reza's ART, this is a consistently entertaining comedy, with a few moments of side-splitting hilarity. The remarkable performance of Bhama Roget, a Seattle actress clearly destined for greater things, offers some of the most amazing physical comedy I have seen in a lifetime of theatre-going. And the ensemble playing of the cast as a whole, in a vehicle that totally depends upon it, is something of a marvel.
God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza, directed by Wilson Milam
Running Time: 90 minutes, no intermission
This 90-minute thrill ride takes the audience into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood. An innocent squabble over a playground incident becomes an all-out, fur-flying, hilarious brawl between two couples in this new play from Yasmina Reza (Art). God of Carnage stormed Broadway, nabbing the 2009 Tony for Best Play and earning knock-out reviews.
