Summary

A theater lover's guide to the dramatic works of one of America's most important living playwrights Edward Albee is without doubt one of the giants of American theater, in the same pantheon with Arthur Miller, Eugene O'Neill, and Tennessee Williams. His prolific career includes three Pulitzer Prizes and the 2005 Lifetime Achievement Tony Award. At the age of eighty, Albee is still producing major works for the theatermost recently a prequel toThe Zoo Story,which shocked the country when it first appeared in 1958and his plays have seen major revivals on and off Broadway in recent years. Yet even with this resurgence of popularity, no up-to-date treatment of his plays is currently in print. With engaging discussions of his most famous plays, such asWho's Afraid of Virginia WoolfandThree Tall Women,as well as his lesser known works, this essential guide reveals the heart of Albee's drama, highlighting the themes of sex, death, loneliness, and time that have occupied the playwright during his almost fifty years in the theater. Toby Zinman is the theater critic for thePhiladelphia Inquirer. She has written for numerous publications, includingVariety,American Theater,andTheatre Journal. She is Professor of English at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
