Tony winner Cherry Jones will step into the iconic role of Amanda Wingfield as the latest Broadway revival of The Glass Menagerie begins previews at the Booth Theatre on September 5. Jones is joined by Celia Keenan-Bolger, Zachary Quinto (in his Broadway debut) and Brian J. Smith in the John Tiffany-directed production, which opens on September 26 for a limited 17-week engagement.
Jones stars as Amanda, a southern belle past her prime who lives with her two grown children in a small St. Louis apartment. While Amanda dreams of a better life for her shy daughter Laura (Keenan-Bolger), she coerces her son Tom (Quinto) into finding his sister a “gentleman caller.” When the caller (Smith) arrives, the family’s fantasies begin to crumble.
Tiffany’s production of The Glass Menagerie premiered at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA in February 2013. The show features set design by Bob Crowley, lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Clive Goodwin, movement by Steven Hoggett and original music by Nico Muhly.
