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

I did not like it until I liked it. And then I really liked it.
The too much updated, too crotch grabbing and 2013 humor put me off for quite awhile. Some in the audience were roaring at every obvious corny move. That may have affected my disdain. When idiots laugh you hesitate. And so by intermission I was thinking enough already, present a truly funny play please. This feels more like sketch comedy with no real connection to 1750 or a credible storyline.
But they kept it up. Nonsense ala Marx brothers went on and on. A bit SNL, some circus and a lead who more than a little channels Jim Carey back when Jim was actually brilliant. Silly songs, silly plot, more non sequiters all began to turn into a hilarious poke in the ribs. And the effort was impressive. Given this was the first preview you are impressed by the ensemble work.
I have seen hundreds of plays and improv acts. I have never seen this. For invention and difference alone and the over the top skill of several leads it is worth seeing.
This show contains crude humor and profanity.
This show’s running time is two hours and thirty minutes with one intermission.
