Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Headed for Broadway

May 16, 1962 - Edward Albee’s first full-length work, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”, will come to Broadway this fall. In contrast with the short plays (all put on in the off-Broadway area) which brought him into prominence, the new one runs about three hours. Only four players — two couples — are required to develop the plot, and only one setting is needed — the living room of a professor’s cottage. The story involves a belligerent couple who refuse to desert each other despite their antipathies. Alan Schneider will be the director. No one has been signed for the cast yet.
