Roundabout’s The Glass Menagerie extends 2 weeks, through June 13

Through June 13, 2010

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Gordon Edelstein

Patch Darragh, Judith Ivey, Keira Keeley, Michael Mosley

“A terrific new production of Tennessee Williams’s fiercely moving and seriously funny play.  Director Gordon Edelstein’s thought-provoking approach is lightning-lit from within by Judith Ivey, giving what is surely the performance of her career.” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

“This is the kind of revival that becomes a golden yardstick by which all future productions of the same play are measured.” – Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

Off-Broadway at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director), is pleased to announce a two week extension of Tennessee Williams’ play The Glass Menagerie now through Sunday, June 13, 2010.

The Glass Menagerie, presented in association with Long Wharf Theatre, is directed by Gordon Edelstein and features Patch Darragh (Tom Wingfield), two-time Tony® Award winner Judith Ivey (Amanda Wingfield), Keira Keeley (Laura Wingfield) and Michael Mosley (Jim O’Connor).
The Glass Menagerie is playing a limited engagement now through June 13, 2010 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).

The design team includes two-time Tony® Award winner Michael Yeargan (Sets), two-time Tony® Award winner Martin Pakledinaz (Costumes), two-time Tony® Award winner & MacArthur Fellow Jennifer Tipton (Lights), David Budries (Sound).
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.
