<p>"When you sit in a theater, you're sitting closer to a complete stranger that you ever would in your own living room. You haven't just seen a show, you've been part of something." </p> <p>Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is the story of George and Martha, two of the most famous roles ever written for the stage. Over the course of one wickedly hilarious evening, the cocktails come out and the gloves come off as this riveting duo takes their two young guests on the ride of their lives. Direct from Broadway and London's West End, the production at the Kennedy Center featured its acclaimed original stars-- Kathleen Turner (2006 London Evening Standard Theatre Award, Best Actress) and the dazzling Bill Irwin (2005 Tony Award, Best Actor). </p> <p>In this Power of Theater podcast, part of the Kennedy Center Education Department's Performance Plus program, actress Kathleen Turner (Serial Mom) discusses the importance of theater as a means of creating a shared experience among strangers and her need to touch the lives of her audience.
