Why See The Glass Menagerie?

The Tony Award-winning team that brought you ONCE presents a their highly acclaimed Broadway revival of the Tennessee Williams' classic, The Glass Menagerie. Produced by the American Repertory Theater, this production has received considerable praise from even the most discerning Broadway critics.

The four-man play features Tony-nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Tony and Emmy Award-winner Cherry Jones (24, Awake, Signs) and film and television star Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness, Heroes, American Horror Story) as well as Brian J. Smith. The production received an impressive seven nominations, Natasha Katz winning for Best Lighting Design of a Play.

Described as "epic and intimate", the play follows Amanda (Jones) and her attempts to find a suitor for her daughter, Laura (Keenan-Bolger). Narrated by Tom (Quinto), we watch as Tom brings home a work colleague (Smith) whom Amanda and Laura both hope to be a potential match for Laura. Abandoned by their husband and father several years earlier though, both women find their own hopes and insecurities come to the fore as the evening plays out.
