Edward Albee's Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf Is Second Show To Announce It Will Not Return

Here we go again. Less than twenty-four hours after the Broadway production of Hangmen announced it will close due to the Coronavirus imposed shutdown, another one is set to due the same. Edward Albee's Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, which was scheduled to open at the Booth Theatre on April 9, will not open after all. The show, which was directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, starred two-time Tony Award winner Laurie Metcalf, Rupert Everett, Patsy Ferran, and Russell Tovey. Now as much as I would love to stay positive, I have a feeling this is just the beginning of show's closing. Oh sure, hits like Hamilton, Wicked, and The Lion King have made enough money over the years that once this ends, they will be able to come back. Unfortunately not every show will be so lucky. Let's just pray that things don't get worse. Stay safe out there everyone. Until next time theatre fans.
