Laurie Metcalf & Eddie Izzard to Star in 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'

Two-time Tony Award and three-time Emmy Award winner Laurie Metcalf and two-time Emmy Award winner Eddie Izzard will star in Edward Albee’s Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? on Broadway next season!

Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello and also starring Russell Tovey and 2019 Olivier Award winner Patsy Ferran, the production will begin a limited engagement on Monday, March 2, 2020, with an official opening night set for Thursday, April 9, 2020.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? stunned its very first Broadway audiences in 1962 with its radical, provocative, and unflinching portrait of a marriage. The New York Times exclaimed that the new work “towers over the common run of contemporary plays.” The revival will feature set design by Miriam Buether (currently represented on Broadway by To Kill a Mockingbird and King Lear), lighting design by nine-time Tony Award winner Jules Fisher & three-time Tony Award winner Peggy Eisenhauer, and costumes by Tony and Academy Award winner Ann Roth.
