About the show:
In the play, Amanda Wingfield (two-time Tony® Award winner Jones) is a Southern belle past her prime, living with two grown children in a small apartment in St. Louis. Amanda dreams of a better life for her shy and crippled daughter Laura (two-time Tony Award nominee CELIA KEENAN-BOLGER), and so she pushes her son, Tom (Quinto, Angels in America), to find a "gentleman caller" for the girl. However, the arrival of the gentleman caller (BRIAN J. SMITH, The Columnist) sends shockwaves through the family and causes cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them going.
A beautiful play full of poetry & longing, THE GLASS MENAGERIE has triumphantly returned to Broadway in an groundbreaking & critically-acclaimed new production.
