The Glass Menagerie, the acclaimed revival of Tennessee Williams’ unforgettable masterpiece, will be arriving on the Great White Way this fall! With start of previews on September 5, 2013 and opening night on September 26, 2013, The Glass Menagerie plays the Booth Theatre until January 5, 2014.
In The Glass Menagerie, meet the Wingfield family – Amanda, the mother of the financially-challenged family who yearns for her youth as a feted Southern Belle; Tom, the son who dreams of escaping his monotonous job at the shoe warehouse to become a poet; and Laura, the shy and fragile daughter wrapped in her own world with her collection of miniature glass animal figurines. Amanda counts on Tom to find a “gentleman caller” for Laura.
Experience this exquisite family drama as The Glass Menagerie begins previews at the Booth Theatre on September 5 (Thursday) with nightly performances at 8 PM from Tuesday through Saturday and matinee shows at 2 PM every Wednesday and Saturday and at 3 PM every Sunday. After the September 25 (Wednesday) opening night, the Tuesday and Thursday performances will be at 7 PM. Every performance runs for 2 hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission.
