Infancy Stage

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? playwright Edward Albee's still kicking at 82 (hasn't he been around longer?), and his methods predate cyberbullying, kids. No one can hurt you more than those you love, right in front of you in flesh and blood. And you don't get all emo and hang yourself in your Bieber Fever-plastered room, okay? You hurt them back.

There's a time and a place to destroy innocence, and we've found that when you're there, the heavy lifting is best left to specialists. Your session commences today at iTheatre Collaborative's performance of Albee's spiritual sequel to Woolf, The Play About the Baby. It’s a night filled with superior wordsmithing, an intermittently appearing cash bar, humor, nudity, adult language, and absurdity. Don’t tell us you have a better offer.

Fri., April 30, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 1, 8 p.m.; Sun., May 2, 2 p.m.; Thu., May 6, 8 p.m.; Fri., May 7, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 8, 8 p.m.; Fri., May 14, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 15, 8 p.m., 2010
