Last weekend Chris surprised me with tickets to a show called Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at a small community theater called The Curtain Call Theater in Braintree, MA. I had never heard of this show before (and neither had he), but after reading the description of the show, I was excited to see it. I was even more excited to check out the theater, though. I had never been there and honestly some of the best shows I’ve ever seen have been put on at small, local theaters like this.
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? features husband and wife George and Martha in a night of dangerous fun and games. A stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years. When the play opened in Broadway over 50 years ago, Newsweek rightly foresaw Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? as “a brilliantly original work of art—an excoriating theatrical experience, surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire [that] will be igniting Broadway for some time to come.” Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? won a 2013 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.
