Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

The Tony Award winner is keen to recreate the role of Martha in the tense
Edward Albee play, and she'd like Douglas to play her character's professor
husband, George, onstage. She tells InStyle magazine, "Michael and I often talk
about doing 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' onstage. Wouldn't that be great?
Really ragging on each other. Loud. Rip each other apart. No one wants to see us
in something romantic. That would be corny. But to see us in something vicious?
Something ugly? Definitely!"
The latest Broadway revival of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" opened last
month with actor Tracy Letts and Tony Award nominee Amy Morton among the leads.
The Albee play was adapted for the screen in the mid-1960s, and Elizabeth Taylor
and Richard Burton led the cast.
