A new revival of one of Tennessee William's greatest plays on Broadway starring two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones? I'm there. The Glass Menagerie which first premiered on Broadway in 1945 is set to begin performances at the Booth Theatre on September 5 with opening night set for September 26. The show which also stars Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger, and Zachary Quinto and directed by Tony winner John Tiffany (Once) is scheduled to run thru January 5, 2014.
Now for those of you out there who have never read the play or seen the show here is a synopsis of the play from the shows website. While Amanda Wingfield desperately struggles to provide her fragile daughter with at least one "gentleman caller," her son, Tom, dreams of escaping from his job at a warehouse and his oppressive life at home. An exquisite family drama filtered through Tom's memory.
Now believe it or not but in all the years that I have lived here I have never seen a production. However I think I might have to check this one out. After all Cherry Jones is one of the most talented actors around and I do like Tennessee Williams. By the way for those of you looking to get tickets to this show you are in luck. Not only do we sell The Glass Menagerie but every show both On and Off Broadway. Get your tickets to see The Glass Menagerie. Who knows? Maybe I'll see you there. Until next time theatre fans.
