Quotes & Highlights

“A pulse-racing masterpiece. As Martha, Kathleen Turner secures her berth as a first-rate, depth probing stage actress in a stunning, gorgeous performance. The brilliant Bill Irwin’s George is boldly conceived and chilling. A great marital wrestling match of a play.” —Ben Brantley, New York Times
“Scorching & exhilarating! Suavely directed by Anthony Page, Edward Albee’s Woolf has a soaring, scarring intensity rare in the theatre.” —Clive Barnes, New York Post
“A giddy, vicious thrill! All performances are so good, they’re   inseparable. One of the most dazzling displays of verbal blood sport ever to stain the American stage.” —Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly


A savagely funny event in 3 knockout rounds — it doesn’t get any better than this! Following sensational engagements on Broadway and in London, the national tour began January 11 at the Kennedy Center, opening to rave reviews. Next stop: the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.
