Dennis Storhøi won The Norwegian Critics' Award 2003 for the role of George in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) in 2002.
"Without looking at famous predecessors, he made the characters definitely his: If the worn-down professor he played never became leader of the institute, he at least achieved a doctorate in sarcasm, in eternal dispute with his regular opponent, Martha - in this production passionately brought to life by Anne Krigsvoll.
With discipline and controlled acting he developed a person who had gone wrong, but remained vulnerable; there was massive love in the bottom of it. Thus this version of the play gave us more than just verbal warring, something deeper than wit with a dark undertone. At Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the most famous afterparty of theatrical history became a true hell."
