The critically-acclaimed 50th anniversary Broadway revival of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? will play its final performance on Sunday, March 3rd at 3:00 PM.

The production, which began performances on Thursday, September 27, 2012 and officially opened on Saturday, October 13, 2012, at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street) will have played 159 performances.

One of America’s most acclaimed theatre ensembles takes on one of the greatest plays of the 20th century in the Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Directed by Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon (Clybourne Park), the production features the original Steppenwolf cast led by Tracy Letts and Amy Morton, the playwright and the star of the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning smash hit August: Osage County as George and Martha. They are joined by Carrie Coon and Madison Dirks. 

I saw the show back in December and while the acting and actors were fantastic, I am not a fan of Albee so I left completely unsatisfied.

This production of originally ran at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company from December 2, 2010 – February 13, 2011 before transferring to Washington, D.C.’s Arena Stage, where it ran from February 25 – April 10, 2011.

Tickets can be purchased at Telecharge.com, by calling (212) 239-6200 or at the box office of the Booth Theatre.
