It didn't go to the moon, it went much further! The starry and critically-acclaimed revival of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie has recouped its initial $2.6 million investment, producers announced on January 7. Starring two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones, Zachary Quinto, Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger and Brian J. Smith, the show opened at the Booth Theatre on September 26, 2013 and will run through February 23.
Directed by Tony winner John Tiffany, The Glass Menagerie follows the struggles of the Wingfield family. 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.
