WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - Two of Wausau's biggest names in theatre are getting on the stage this weekend to perform one of the great American dramas.
UW-Marathon County theatre professor Sarah Rudolph and Performing Arts Foundation director Jim O'Connell take the stage in Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe", continuing tonight and tomorrow at the Center for Civic Engagement. O'Connell says the play is one of the great pieces of American Literature. "It was one of the first plays that portrayed marriage without any blinders on."
The joke about Virginia Woolf in the title stems from a conversation in the play about feminism. O'Connell says Virginia Woolf was one of the early English feminists. "Edward Albee said we should all be afraid of Virgina Woolf, because she represents living a life without illusion."
Prices are $15 for general admission tickets and $12 for seniors and students. The show runs tonight and tomorrow at 7:30
