3 Theatres, 3 Albee Readings

Posted: Monday, December 11, 2017, 5:20pm

Curtain Players on January 11-13 welcomes Actors' Theatre of Columbus and The Tipping Point Theatre Company to present a special readers theatre weekend featuring three works by American playwright Edward Albee.

The event, Simply Staged: Albee Fest, has each theatre company presenting for audiences a staged reading of an Albee play each night: Seascape from Actors' Theatre on Thursday January 11; Everything in the Garden from Tipping Point on Friday January 12; and A Delicate Balance from Curtain Players on Saturday January 13. Curtain time is 8 o'clock each night with general admission on a pay-what-you-can basis.

Jeremy Sony is producing the event. Booth Muller is technical director.

Simply Staged in recent years has featured new works by central Ohio playwrights. This year the Curtain Players annual event is designed to be an opportunity to celebrate the playwright's spirit by reading works from Albee's library. Albee (1928-2016) won three Pulitzer Prizes for Drama and two Best Play Tony Awards during his storied career.

Curtain Players this fall presented Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
