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 (Oct12), 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.
