Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Edward Albee intertwines illusion with reality in his iconic play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? George and Martha are middle-aged and married. George and Martha are also drunk. When a much younger couple arrives at their door, drinks flow, inhibitions fade, and reality drifts away. Riddled with tongue twisters and fast-paced banter, the 1963 Tony winner has received countless revivals. This production marks a fresh collaboration between local fashion designer Angelina Mata and the artistic team at AtticRep. Mata’s vision includes a monochromatic color palette that “drowns out the reality of the character’s lives and interrupts the intensity of their emotional state.” Roberto Prestigiacomo directs the production. $18-$28, 8pm Wed-Sat, 2:30pm Sun, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, atticrep.org —Murphi Cook
