Abrons Arts Center announces 2017-2018 season including "Everyone's Fine With Virginia Woolf"
From the New York Times:
“Everyone’s Fine With Virginia Woolf,” a parody of Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” will have its premiere next spring in a staging by the innovative troupe Elevator Repair Service (“Gatz”).
The production is part of the coming season at Abrons Arts Center, a downtown home of adventurous performance and visual art, the organization announced on Sunday.
Elevator Repair Service, whose stage adaptations of “The Sound and the Fury” and “The Great Gatsby” (a verbatim reading called “Gatz”) have earned awards and critical praise, is turning to Albee’s masterpiece for its latest production, written by Kate Scelsa, a member of the company. In the irreverent parody, “rubbing alcohol will be consumed, imaginary pregnancies will be indulged, and gender constructs will be destroyed once and for all,” the troupe said in a statement.
