The Glass Menagerie Returns to Roundabout
By Broadway Magazine Staff
Blow out your candles, Laura...but not quite yet. Tennessee Williams' perfect play The Glass Menagerie is getting a fresh look from the estimable Roundabout Theatre Company in association with Long Wharf Theatre. One of the genuine classics of American Theatre appears to be in good hands in the upcoming production.
The Off Broadway revival stars Patch Darragh(Tom Wingfield), two-time Tony® Award winner Judith Ivey(Amanda Wingfield), Keira Keeley(Laura Wingfield) & Michael Mosley(Jim O'Connor). The production is directed by Gordon Edelstein, in a "fresh interpretation" of William's memory play.
According to the press release: Tom Wingfield (Darragh) sits writing in a hotel room, trying to forge his past into art. Soon Tom's space is overtaken by the cramped apartment he once shared with his mother Amanda (Ivey), his beloved sister Laura (Keeley) and unrequited dreams as fragile as Laura's collection of tiny glass animals. There, Tom relives the Gentleman Caller's (Mosley) visit – the night that changed his family forever.
The Glass Menagerie will open officially on Wednesday, March 24th, 2010 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre(111 West 46thStreet).
