THE GLASS MENAGERIE Comes to the New National Theatre Next Month

In collaboration with the Odéon-Théâtre de l'Europe in Paris, the New National Theatre will present the Japanese premiere of a new production of Tennessee WILLIAM's masterpiece The Glass Menagerie, which had its world premiere in Paris in March 2020.

The lead Amada will be played by the legendary French actress Isabelle Huppert.
Ivo van Hove, one of the busiest directors in the world, directs William's autobiographical play.
