Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? on Broadway Tickets

Booth Theatre

Tony and Emmy Award winner Laurie Metcalf stars opposite Rupert Everett in a revival of Broadway classic Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Edward Albee’s slick story about a toxic marriage will thrill audiences at the Booth Theatre from March 3 2020.

Please note that remaining performances of Who's Afraid of Virigina Woolf? have been cancelled following government advice regarding coronavirus (COVID-19).

Two-time Tony Award winner Laurie Metcalf continues a winning Broadway streak as she takes on Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite Rupert Everett. This outrageous – and outrageously entertaining – play from Tennessee Williams will open at the Booth Theatre.

Set in the early hours on a college campus, Albee’s provocative play follows dangerously entangled couple Martha and George as they welcome George’s new colleague Nick for after-party drinks.

With alcohol flowing freely and resentments growing, Nick and his wife Honey find themselves caught in an intoxicating web of mind-games and revelations as the older couple’s marital woes are played out for an audience.

The cast of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf on Broadway includes Tony Award winner Laurie Metcalf (Three Tall Women; A Doll’s House Part 2), fresh off a critically acclaimed run in Hillary and Clinton.

Metcalf is joined in the four-hander by BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Rupert Everett (Another Country; My Best Friend’s Wedding), Olivier Award winner Patsy Ferran (Summer and Smoke) in her Broadway debut, and Russell Tovey (Angels in America; The History Boys).

Director Joe Mantello previously worked with Metalf on the Tony Award winning Three Tall Women and Hillary and Clinton. With awards including an Obie membership of the Theatre Hall of Fame, he is also helming an adaptation of The Boys in the Band for Netflix.

With an incredible cast from both sides of the Atlantic, this revival of a caustic classic is a hot ticket for Broadway’s 2020 season.
