"Twelve times a week," answered Uta Hagen, when asked how often she'd like to play Martha in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Like her, neither audiences nor critics could get enough of Edward Albee's masterful play. A dark comedy, it portrays husband and wife George and Martha in a searing night of dangerous fun and games. By the evening's end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years. With the play's razor-sharp dialogue and the stripping away of social pretense, "Newsweek" rightly foresaw "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" as "a brilliantly original work of art-an excoriating theatrical experience, surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire Ýthat will be igniting Broadway for some time to come."

"An intensity, a demoniac misery, a ferocious humour...no one can remain indifferent to its power, its resilience of ideas and its range of language" ( Sunday Times)
"Deliciously toxic, acidly funny" ( Washington Post)
"There is a great sense of danger in Edward's work, and you never quite know what's going to happen next... I think what is one of the most pronounced ingredients in his work is mischief" (Harold Pinter)
"Scorching and exhilarating" ( New York Post)
"The verbal sparring and violence of Albee's early masterpiece remain astonishing, even frightening, yet bitterly, horribly funny...a classic play" ( The Times)
'Martha: Look, sweetheart, I can drink you under any goddamn table you want...so don't worry about me!
George: Martha, I gave you the prize years ago...There isn't an abomination award going that you...
Martha: I swear...if you existed I'd divorce you...'
