The Glass Menagerie opens officially on Wednesday, March 24th, 2010 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). The cast features Patch Darragh (Tom Wingfield), two-time Tony® Award winner Judith Ivey (Amanda Wingfield), Keira Keeley (Laura Wingfield) and Michael Mosley (Jim O’Connor).  This will be a limited engagement through May 30th, 2010.
 
In this fresh interpretation of Williams’ haunting memory play, 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.
 
Generous support for The Glass Menagerie provided by the Laura Pels Foundation.
