Roundabout Theatre Company's acclaimed off-Broadway revival of The Glass Menagerie has extended for two weeks. Tennessee Williams’ classic play, which was originally set to close on May 30, will now play through June 13 at the Laura Pels Theatre. Directed by Gordon Edelstein, the production opened to rave reviews on March 24, starring Judith Ivey, Patch Darragh, Keira Keeley and Michael Mosley.
Williams’ semi-autobiographical memory play focuses on Tom Wingfield (Darragh), who 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. In that shared space, Tom relives gentleman caller Jim O’Connor’s (Mosley) visit on the night that changed his family forever.
The design team for The Glass Menagerie includes Michael Yeargan (sets), Martin Pakledinaz (costumes), Jennifer Tipton (lights) and David Budries (sound).
