Encore Michigan

Flint Repertory’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” opens March 22

Show Announcement March 11, 2024

t’s 2AM and George and Martha are just getting started. The middle-aged married couple, a once-promising historian and his boss’s frustrated daughter, welcome a younger professor and his wife for a nightcap—only to ensnare them in increasingly dangerous rounds of fun and games. An unblinking portrait of two American marriages, WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF is Edward Albee’s explosively comedic and harrowingly profound masterpiece.

The cast of all Flint Rep associate artists includes Janet Haley as Martha, Rico Bruce Wade as George, Kevin O’Callaghan as Nick and Amanda Kuo as Honey.

“We couldn’t be more excited to produce this fresh and dangerous new take on Edward Albee’s darkly funny and unsettling play,” says Flint Rep Producing Artistic Director Michael Lluberes. “George and Martha are two of the greatest roles in the American theatre and they’re being played by two of Michigan’s finest actors, Flint Rep associate artists Janet Haley and Rico Bruce Wade. The play is a ferocious and dazzling emotional boxing match and there’s no better way to experience it than in the intimate Elgood Theatre.”

The play features scenic and costume design by Scott Penner, lighting design by Mike Billings, sound design by Taylor J. Williams, fight & intimacy direction by Alexis Black and is stage managed by Ernie Fimbres.

The curtain is at 7pm instead of the normal 8 pm.
