"Marital discord has never been so fun"
Cocktails and crossfire are on the menu when one of Broadway’s most famous plays returns to New York for its 50th anniversary at the Booth Theatre. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? tells the tale of George, a history professor, and his wife Martha, whose marriage is based on verbal assault as much as love. Joining the older couple for after-party drinks is the school’s new biology professor, Nick, and his mousy wife, Honey. Things quickly degrade as George and Martha engage in verbal assault that swerves from attacking each other to focusing on the unwitting young couple. Humiliation, drinking and demented party games make for captivating theater at its best that gets even better with tickets from BestofNewYork.com.
