Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and The Piano Lesson

Two great productions of two great plays in New York at the same time without a single movie star in the cast? Sounds crazy, no?  But “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” at the Booth, courtesy of Steppenwolf Theatre Company, and August Wilson’s “The Piano Lesson” at Signature Theatre Company are both sensational evenings. Each one is about a three-hour ride, but both were mesmerizing to us — great performances (especially Tracy Letts the Albee), great writing, beautifully directed and designed, each in its own way completely illuminating about the way we struggle to achieve what’s out of reach. We’d happily sit through both again.  –jack viertel
