If Walter Kerr was so opposed to "breaking the 4th wall," I wonder what he thought of Shakespeare's characters' frequent asides to the audience!

Loved the play. The characters give us so many ways to get into the play. It is a deeply personal experience. Brav

Rather than comparing "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" to "The Lady from Dubuque", I would compare it more to "A Delicate Balance". In fact my comment to my partner as we left the theater was "I't's a lot like 'A Delicate Balance' with the stakes raised. We're not dealing with a vague fear ao much as a fear of and our realtion to what most people fear most - death.
