I had a rare opportunity to see Mr. Edward Albee speak at UCLA last Saturday. The man is a legendary playwright who is responsible for the most flopped and most loved, critically acclaimed plays in Broadway’s history. One maybe familiar with his works such as “The America Dream”, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”, “The Play about a Baby”. Edward is very sharp and well spoken for the 81 year old man, he gave so much wisdom and food for the brain it was just… You know, sometimes when you read something in the good book, or hear someone bright speak, you get the feeling like it speaks directly to you and it’s the greatest thought you’ve ever had, that sudden moment of clarity? That’s what it was like to listen to him, truly inspiring. Anyway read up on Edward Albee here and make sure to watch the video bellow.
