Mar. 12, 2017: birthday: Edward Albee

It’s the birthday of playwright Edward Albee (books by this author), born Edward Harvey in Washington, D.C. (1928).  After dabbling for some years in fiction and poetry, he completed his first play, The Zoo Story (1958), when he was 30. He’s best known for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962), which was his first Broadway play and a runaway hit.
