Edward Albee 1928-2016

Sorry to learn of the death of this great playwright who had a profound effect on me as a teenager. I read his play The American Dream over and over until I found that I knew it by heart, and finally saw a production of it when I was maybe 15. I also saw Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf" when I was a teen on Broadway, it was the first play I saw and again it had a tremendous effect on me. A few years ago I wrote to him and he wrote me back and we had a short correspondence.
