Three Tall Women New York Tickets
Three Tall Women New York TicketsThree Tall Women, which is a 1991 drama from the Pulitzer-winning American playwright Edward Albee, tells the story of three women, nearly 70 years apart in age, who reflect the different stages of a woman’s life. The three characters talk, argue and ruminate among themselves, each informed by their different perspectives. Albee incorporated autobiographical elements from his own life into the play, particularly concerning the details of his adoptive mother. As critics noted at the time, the play was largely responsible for revitalizing Albee’s dormant career. Audiences in New York City can experience a live performance of Three Tall Women in one of the world’s premiere theater scenes.
A Rage for DyingEdward Albee was already considered to be one of America’s most decorated playwrights by 1991. He had previously won two Pulitzer Prizes for Drama for A Delicate Balance and Seascape in the 1960s and 1970s. He was also awarded the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. After a period of creative disappointment in the 1980s, he returned to the spotlight with the success of Three Tall Women. However, the play took a long and circuitous route to the Broadway stage. It first premiered at the English Theatre in Vienna, Austria, in June 1991 with Albee directing the play himself. The American premiere took place at the off-Broadway Vineyard Theatre in January 1994. This production featured a cast of Myra Carter, Marian Seldes and Jordan Baker. It earned Albee the 1994 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, his third Pulitzer in total. After numerous other national and international productions, Three Tall Women finally made its Broadway debut at the John Golden Theatre on March 29, 2018, and ran until June 24 of the same year. The Broadway production received six nominations from the 2018 Tony Awards. Glenda Jackson and Laurie Metcalf won Best Actress in a Play and Best Featured Actress in a Play, respectively.

The character of "A" is wealthy, imperious and proud as she contemplates the end of her life. "C," on the other hand, is a young self-assured lawyer at the beginning of her career. "B" falls somewhere in the middle. The drama focuses on what the characters reveal about themselves and each other over long, complex conversations. It is intended for mature audiences.
