Just announced today, Wednesday September 11, 2019, Rupert Everett will star along side of Tony and Emmy Award winner Laurie Metcalf in the Broadway production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? this spring of 2020.

This will be Everett's return to Broadway for the first time in 10 years. He's no stranger to the stage as he got his start in London's West End in 1981 starring in Another Country. He has several stage credits to his name as well, but will be his first time back on Broadway since 2009's Blithe Spirit.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? made its Broadway debut in 1962 where it stunned audiences.

This production is produced by Scott Rudin, Barry Diller, and David Geffen. It features set design by Miriam Buether, lighting from Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, and costumes by Ann Roth.

Previews for the show begin March 2, 2020 with an opening scheduled for April 2, 2020 at the Shubert Theatre.
