He may have written one of the most critically praised revivals on Broadway this season, but the playwright Edward Albee sees the theatrical thoroughfare without a lot of romance or regard.
In a segment of the show "CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood" that will be broadcast Sunday, Albee says he doesn't go see shows there very often.
“I used to go see more since I’m one of the voters for the stuff,” Albee says of his role as a Tony Award voter. “Now I just lie.”
“It’s all about not doing the best plays but doing the ones that will sell the most tickets,” says Albee, the author of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” among 30 other plays. The result, he says, is “usually junk.”
