What People Are Saying

Michael Feingold
Most likely to be talked about seriously—angrily, ferociously—for years to come.
Clive Barnes
Unquestionably one of the wittiest and funniest plays Albee has ever written...enthralling.
Margo Jefferson
Leaves you with plenty to feel and think about...a tragedy with built-in laughs and elements of fantasy...a brave, questioning play.
Ben Brantley
The Goat is about a profoundly unsettling subject, which for the record is not bestiality but the irrational, confounding, and even convention-thwarting nature of love. The form this force takes in The Goat is beyond a joke...Powerful...extraordinary...Four decades after Virginia Woolf sent shockwaves through the mainstream theatre, Mr. Albee still asks questions that no other major American dramatist dares to ask.

    A Challenge

    Edward Albee has always masterfully created scenes that not only capture the audience and bring them into the story, but showcase every possible emotion the actors performing the show can muster. "The Goat" presents the controversial topic of bestiality in an intensely sentimental way that amplifies the hostile level of discomfort already rampant in the family. With betrayal, fatherhood, affairs, homosexuality, ageism, incest, and fierce bouts of swearing "The Goat" is an absolute emotional thrill and should be read by every actor (or anyone who appreciates fabulous modern literature). The Tony award doesn't lie!
