Appearing In Person:

Edward Albee
Kathleen Turner
Filmmakers: James Dowell  and John Kolomvakis
Moderator: Ben Brantley, Chief Theater Critic, The New York Times

Ben Brantley, chief drama critic of the New York Times, has stated that Edward Albee is “without peer among American playwrights,” asking the most basic existential questions. This intimate documentary uncovers the life and artistry of the man who continues to inspire and challenge the Broadway community. Albee is casually captured in his loft amid his extensive art collection, as well as relaxing in his summer home in Montauk. Actors Kathleen Turner, Marian Seldes, Bill Irwin, and Bill Pullman reflect on the challenges of performing Albee’s work, in addition to reading from his plays. Albee’s place in theatrical history is considered by playwrights Tony Kushner, Terrence McNally, and John Guare. The Stages of Edward Albee is engaging and revealing, illuminating the creative process and the impact of one illustrious writer on his colleagues and audience.
