The Waves by Virginia WoolfA century after the Bloomsburty group came together, English director Katie Mitchell’s adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel The Waves is on stage at The Duke on 42nd Street in New York City, Nov. 14 through Nov. 22.

There, in its U.S. premiere, the play is part of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Lincoln Center’s New Visions series, which this year is subtitled “The Literary Muse,” and which we heralded on Blogging Woolf in February.
