It's as if Edward Albee took all the TV sitcoms and traditional family value films of the 50s, shoved them in a vise, and squeezed out demons. Who's Afraid is a three-act, atonal opera that frisks, tests, and smashes limits, including the emotional limits of actors. Intrepid Theatre Company has done a remarkable job with one of the most demanding plays in the English language. They have also rebalanced the story. Instead of a star vehicle -- "Here's Martha!" -- Christy Yael-Cox has directed an ensemble show; all points of view matter, with George's a mite foremost. Robert Smyth (George), Deborah Gilmour Smyth (Martha), Ross Hellwig (Nick), and Erin Petersen (Honey) all excel. And the play still packs a wallop. No. Make that several. Critic's Pick.
