Roundabout’s THE GLASS MENAGERIE opens tomorrow 3/24

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY

THE GLASS MENAGERIE

Opens tomorrow Wednesday, March 24th!

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

Opening night is tomorrow, March 24th for Roundabout Theatre Company’s new production of Tennessee Williams’ play The Glass Menagerie, directed by Gordon Edelstein, presented in associated in association with Long Wharf Theatre.

The cast of The Glass Menagerie 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 will play a limited engagement at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street) through May 30th, 2010.

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.
 
This production of Williams’ semi-autobiographical play premiered May 20th, 2009 at Long Wharf Theatre (Gordon Edelstein, Artistic Director) in New Haven, CT and was directed by Gordon Edelstein.  The play originally premiered in Chicago in 1944, moving to New York the next year, where it won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, featuring Laurette Taylor as Amanda in one of the iconic performances in American theatre history. The Glass Menagerie was Williams’ first successful play.
 
Generous support for The Glass Menagerie provided by the Laura Pels Foundation.
