THEATER

`Virginia Woolf' visits

Edward Albee's Tony Award-winning Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? makes a month-long stopover at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The touring production, which begins its five-city tour tonight in Washington, runs through Jan. 28 in the Eisenhower Theater. Starring 2006 London Evening Standard Award winner Kathleen Turner and 2005 Tony Award-winning actor Bill Irwin, the show revolves around bitter married couple George and Martha (Irwin and Turner), who use their unwitting young dinner guests as pawns in a fierce, but sometimes comical, verbal feud.

The show runs today through Jan. 28 at the Kennedy Center, Eisenhower Theater, 2700 F St. N.W., Washington. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays with matinees at 1:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets $25-$78. Call 800-444-1324 or go to kennedy-center.org.
