“Be prepared to have the breath knocked out of you.”-

OVERVIEW

From director John Tiffany and the Tony Award®-winning creative team behind Once comes a spellbinding new production of Tennessee Williams’s masterpiece The Glass Menagerie.

Amanda Wingfield (two-time Tony Award winner Cherry Jones) is a Southern belle past her prime, living with two grown children in a small apartment in St. Louis. Amanda dreams of a better life for her shy and crippled daughter Laura (two-time Tony Award nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger), and so she pushes her son, Tom (Zachary Quinto, Angels in America), to find a “gentleman caller” for the girl. However, the arrival of the gentleman caller (Brian J. Smith, The Columnist) sends shock waves through the family and causes cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them going.

A beautiful play full of poetry & longing, The Glass Menagerie makes a triumphant return to Broadway in an exquisite & groundbreaking new production.
