The Glass Menagerie

 

Two-time Academy Award-winner Sally Field and two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello return to the Broadway stage to star in Tennessee Williams’s most cherished play, The Glass Menagerie. Tony Award winner Sam Gold (Fun Home) will direct the production, a transfer from a Dutch production at Toneelgroep Amsterdam that garnered rave reviews and massive international attention.

Tennessee Williams’s autobiographical “memory play” looks at the WIngfield family—frustrated writer Tom, his nagging mother, Amanda, who is often lost in memories of her Southern-belle past, and his painfully shy sister, Laura—and the effect a visit from a “gentleman caller” for Laura has on all their lives.
