The Stages of Edward Albee examines the life and work of a writer who many consider the leading playwright of our times. In this very personal account of Albee James Dowell paints his portrait while the dramatist is being interviewed. Interviews include many others with Albee, as well as ones with the playwrights John Guare, Tony Kushner and Terrence McNally, as well as the actors Rosemary Harris, Bill Pullman, Bill Irwin, Judith Ivey, Kathleen Turner and Marian Seldes. Mr. Pullman, Mr. Irwin, Ms. Turner and Ms. Seldes have also given us notable readings from Albee plays.
