Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? 

When: Aug. 23-Sept. 14 2013
Apparently, every few years a theater community needs a good emotional bloodletting, Edward Albee style, courtesy of his most famous — and famously treacherous — play. Tennessee Rep scored big with a memorable 2004 mounting starring Mark Cabus and Pam Wild, and in 2010 ACT 1 gave us Ed Amatrudo (of Nashville fame) and Melissa Bedinger Hade in a production that impressively located some new levels of hate speech within the marital discord. Now at Boiler Room Theatre, college campus hellions Martha and George will be portrayed by none other than multi-hyphenate Trish Crist (writer-director-producer-actress) and another versatile talent, Jamey Green, who steps away from behind the piano, where he can usually be found directing the songs and singers for BRT’s mostly musical lineup of productions. Both performers have clocked their share of stage time in their careers, but the sustained venom and ruthless resolve required here should prove a special challenge for each. The production is under the direction of Jayme Smith, heretofore familiar to regular theatergoers as a BRT stage manager. New faces Tyler Jeffrey Adams and Corinne Bupp are cast as the younger couple who suffer their boozy elders’ psychic ambush.
