10/13/1962     Albee's "Cup of Oolong"    read it now!
On this day in 1962, Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? premiered in New York. One bespattered opening night reviewer described the play as being "three and a half hours long, four characters wide, and a cesspool deep," but it ran for two years on Broadway and was soon playing around the world -- including a production in Prague retitled, "Who's Afraid of Franz Kafka?"

Why Read Plays? An article by Edward Albee
A short essay, published in Zoetrope: All-Story magazine, in which Albee argues for the merits of reading plays. He writes: "most performances are inadequate either in that the minds at work are just not up to the task no matter how sincerely they try, or the stagers are aggressively interested in 'interpretation' or 'concept' with the result that our experience of the play, as an audience, is limited, is only partial."
