Just as “Hillary and Clinton” opens on Broadway, its star Laurie Metcalf has already lined up her next Broadway gig, and it’s an iconic one at that. The two-time Tony Award winner (“A Doll’s House Part 2,” “Three Tall Women”) will return to Broadway next spring in a remounting of Edward Albee’s legendary play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” opposite Eddie Izzard, Russell Tovey and Patsy Ferran. Joe Mantello, who led Metcalf to her second Tony win last year and could help her win her third this year for “Hillary,” will direct the revival.
