"It is one of my great joys as Artistic Director of McCarter Theatre that Edward Albee has been a guest of this theater for so many collaborations from Marriage Play and through All Over and Me, Myself & I(both of which I directed at McCarter and in New York). Once again, it is an enormous pleasure to share with you the work of Edward Albee, one of the world's finest living playwrights and a National Treasure," says director Emily Mann.
