The box office at Broadway's Booth Theatre -- where Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? will begin previews on September 27 -- opened for business on Thursday, August 30.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary revival, all tickets sold on August 30 cost $50. Additionally, the first 25 patrons in line received a Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? prize pack, which included a copy of the script signed by Albee and a commemorative flask. On hand to greet ticket buyers were director Pam MacKinnon and lead producer Jeffrey Richards.
As previously reported, Tracy Letts and Amy Morton reprise their performances as George and Martha in the production, which opens on October 13. The cast also features Carrie Coon and Madison Dirks. The play centers on two couples -- one older, one younger -- sharing a drunken evening at a small liberal arts college.
The Broadway production will feature the original Steppenwolf creative team: Todd Rosenthal (set design), Nan Cibula-Jenkins (costume design), Allen Lee Hughes (light design) and Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound design).
