A rapturous daze is the condition you find yourself in after an evening with Kathleen Turner and Bill Irwin and the magnificent grudge match they make of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

As the play's snarling older couple -- vindictive George and predatory Martha -- the twitchy Irwin and husky-voiced Turner made for an intriguing pairing from the start. (Irwin won a Tony for his portrayal, but Turner's was equally accolade-worthy.) The many months they have spent onstage together have allowed them to seal the impression of a truly diabolical domestic bond -- a marriage marinated in bile.
