Roundabout Theatre Company in association with Long Wharf Theatre opened Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, last night, March 24. Directed by Gordon Edelstein, the production stars Patch Darragh (Tom Wingfield), two-time Tony® Award winner Judith Ivey (Amanda Wingfield), Keira Keeley (Laura Wingfield), and Michael Mosley (Jim O'Connor). Performances began on Friday, March 5th, 2010 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre This will be a limited engagement through May 30th, 2010.

The design team includes two-time Tony® Award winner Michael Yeargan (Sets), two-time Tony® Award winner Martin Pakledinaz (Costumes), two-time Tony® Award winner & MacArthur Fellow Jennifer Tipton (Lights), David Budries (Sound).

In this fresh interpretation of Williams' haunting memory play, Tom Wingfield (Darragh) sits writing in a hotel room, trying to forge his past into art. Soon Tom's space is overtaken by the cramped apartment he once shared with his mother Amanda (Ivey), his beloved sister Laura (Keeley) and unrequited dreams as fragile as Laura's collection of tiny glass animals. There, Tom relives the Gentleman Caller's (Mosley) visit - the night that changed his family forever.

This production of Williams' semi-autobiographical play premiered May 20th, 2009 at the Long Wharf Theatre (Gordon Edelstein, Artistic Director) in New Haven, CT and was directed by Gordon Edelstein. The play originally premiered in Chicago in 1944, moving to New York the next year, where it won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, featuring Laurette Taylor as Amanda in one of the iconic performances in American theatre history. The Glass Menagerie was Williams' first successful play.
