John Tiffany’s much praised new revival of the Tennessee Williams classic The Glass Menagerie has announced an additional seven-week extension to its limited run at Broadway’s Booth Theatre. The show was originally scheduled to play its final performance on January 5, 2014, but will now play through February 23, 2014. The show opened on September 26.
Cherry Jones, Zachary Quinto, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Brian J. Smith star in the American Repertory Theater production of one of Williams’ finest dramas, which follows the struggles of the Wingfield family. Jones plays Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle who yearns for a bright future for her crippled daughter Laura and restless son Tom.
The exquisite production features set and costumes by Bob Crowley, lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Clive Goodwin, original music by Nico Muhly and movement by Steven Hoggett.
