You won't find Edward Albee in the theater on opening night for one of his plays.

So, where is the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright? "I go to a movie, always," he says.

"I don't want the set to fall down, or actors to forget their lines," he says. "I turn off about five days before the production opens because everything's been fixed if anything's wrong, and the actors know what they're doing."

One of his Pulitzer Prize winners, "A Delicate Balance" (1967) is being revived at Arena Stage in Washington. He also won Pulitzers for "Seascape" (1975) and "Three Tall Women" (1994).

Albee, who turns 81 March 12, is still writing. He plans to open his latest play, "Me, Myself and I," on Broadway this fall.
