Photo Flash: First Look at The Hypocrites' THE GLASS MENAGERIE
This winter, Hans Fleischmann re-imagines his groundbreaking conception of Tennessee Williams' classic drama in a new The Hypocrites production of THE GLASS MENAGERIE, playing now through March 6, 2016 at The Den Theatre's Heath Main Stage, 1329 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. The press opening is Sunday, February 7 at 3 pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Fleischmann's original production and subsequent remount with Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. enjoyed critical praise and sold-out houses. Now for The Hypocrites audiences, Fleischmann will push his own vision further and redefine his inventive and magical touch on this American classic.
Directed by and featuring Hans Fleischmann himself as Tom, the cast of THE GLASS MENAGERIE also includes Kate Buddeke as Amanda, Joanne Dubach as Laura and Zach Wegner as The Gentleman Caller. The production features an original score by Daniel Knox.
Beautiful and heart-wrenching, THE GLASS MENAGERIE focuses on a man obsessed with regrets from his past. Living on the streets, he navigates an audience through the gritty back-alleys of his imagination. Truth and delusion collide in director Hans Fleishmann's newest re-imagining of Tennessee Williams' classic memory play.
The production team for THE GLASS MENAGERIE includes: Grant Sabin (scenic design), Mieka Van Der Ploeg (costume design), Aaron James Stephenson (sound design), Matt Gawryk (lighting design), Brontë DeShong (properties design), Paul Deziel (projections), Andrew Donnelly (assistant director), John Kelly (master electrician), Pat Fries (production manager), Casey Peek (stage manager).
