Flint Repertory Theatre Presents Tennessee Williams' THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Flint Repertory Theatre presents "THE GLASS MENAGERIE" by Tennessee Williams starring Janet Haley as Amanda Wingfield, Directed by Producing Artistic Director Michael Lluberes. Performances begin Friday April 5 and runs through Sunday April 14. Tickets are now on sale.
A play of exquisite beauty, Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie is one of the greatest American classics of the 20th Century. Reality and illusion collide in this emotional family drama. Flint Rep takes a bold new approach to Tennessee Williams' deeply autobiographical play as we watch Tom Craft his memories into theatre in front of our eyes.
The play takes place entirely in the memory of Tom Wingfield, the narrator and protagonist, who serves as a mirror of Williams' own life. It tells of Tom's fraught relationship with his mother, fading southern belle Amanda, whose histrionic nature overshadows both Tom and his sister, Laura, a wallflower who is crippled by her own shyness and spends her days lost in her collection of glass figurines.
"THE GLASS MENAGERIE" is directed by Michael Lluberes (Assassins, The Boatman) and features Scenic Design by Michael Lluberes, Costume Design by Shelby Newport (Birthday Candles), Lighting Design by Chelsie McPhilimy (Assassins) and Sound Design by Matthew Tibbs.
"THE GLASS MENAGERIE" stars Flint Rep Associate Artist Janet Haley (Wilde Award Winner, The Tempest MSF) as Amanda, Michael Lopetrone (Out of Orbit, Silent Sky)as Tom, Meredith Deighton (Significant Other, The Wolves)as Laura and Scott Anthony Joy (Assassins) as Jim.
