Hagen reprises ‘Woolf’ role in L.A.

Reading to benefit Playwrights Foundation, Programs for Youth

NEW YORK — Uta Hagen, who originated the role of Martha in the 1962 Broadway production of Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” will reprise her performance in a staged reading April 16 at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles.

The benefit will also feature Jonathan Pryce as George, Mia Farrow as Honey and Peter Gallagher as Nick. Proceeds go to the HB Playwrights Foundation & Theater Endowment (founded by Hagen and her late husband, Herbert Berghof) and Center Theatre Group’s Programs for Youth.

The fundraiser is a repeat of a Nov. 14 gala at the Majestic Theater in New York that featured Hagen, Pryce and Farrow. Matthew Broderick played Nick in that performance, but he’s now in Boston in an out-of-town tryout for the Broadway-bound production of Elaine May’s “Taller Than a Dwarf.”

Chairs for the event are Jack Lemmon, Dina Merrill, Harold Prince and Isaac Stern. For preferred seating tickets ($125-$250), call (213) 972-7690. For regular tickets, call (213) 628-2772.

Hagen’s reading of the Martha role last November made several New York theater critics’ 10-best lists for 1999.
