Edward Albee’s award-winning Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is considered a masterwork of American drama, with dazzling language and unforgettable characters. There is no dysfunctional stage couple quite like George and Martha. The funny and darkly unsettling duo welcomes you into their living room, along with the young couple Honey and Nick. Lean in to the titillating shock and awe of this masterpiece of modern American Theatre, whose characters were just as radical, hilarious, and unforgettable then as they are today.

The producers, the playwrights, the reviewers, and the stars. A Broadway opening night party in a stylish NYC apartment brings together a cacophony of characters, with an armload of wit, warmth, and winter coats! It’s Only A Play is a laugh-out- loud love letter to the resilience of live theatre, and an homage to the people that — even when things seem impossible — believe that the marquee will be lit again, and the show must go on.
