VIDEO: Quinto & Cast of GLASS MENAGERIE Appear on Charlie Rose

The cast of the current Broadway revival of The Glass Menagerie, including Cherry Jones, Zachary Quinto, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Brian J. Smith appeared on the October 3rd broadcast of Charlie Rose on PBS.

Speaking on how he prepared for the role in the classic Tennessee Williams play, Quinto explained, "There's no shortage of literature about him [Williams] or sotries by him about his family as well as many versions of what ultimately became this play. So there were a lot of points of entry for me."

Check out the appearance below!

From director John Tiffany and the Tony Award-winning team behind Once comes a spell-binding new production of Tennessee Williams' masterpiece The Glass Menagerie. Amanda Wingfield (Cherry 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 (Celia Keenan-Bolger), and so she pushes her son Tom (Zachary Quinto) to find a "gentleman caller" for the girl. However, the arrival of the gentleman caller (Brian J. Smith) 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 and longing, The Glass Menagerie makes its triumphant return to Broadway in an exquisite and groundbreaking new production.

The American Repertory Theater's production of Tennessee Williams's The Glass Menagerie is presented on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, John N. Hart Jr., Jerry Frankel, Lou Spisto / Lucky VIII, INFINITY Stages, Scott M. Delman, JAM Theatricals, Mauro Taylor, Rebecca Gold, Michael Palitz, Charles E. Stone, Will Trice, and GFOUR Productions.

The production ran in Cambridge from Saturday, February 2, 2013, through Sunday, March 17, 2013 at A.R.T.
