The Glass Menagerie Broadway

A mother struggles to hold on to her family. A son struggles to let go. A daughter struggles to find her way in the world. Tennessee Williams’ memory play paints a heart-wrenching portrait of the Wingfield family, with each member trapped in a reality that they are desperate to – but cannot truly - escape.

Overflowing with trademark Mae West one-liners, and with its frank sexuality heightened by Hinton-Davis's gender-bent casting, Sex begins previews at the Jackie Maxwell Studio Theatre on June 21st.

A pervading air of discontent and general unease looms over the lackluster St. Louis apartment of the Wingfield family in Tennesee Williams memory play, THE GLASS MENAGERIE. The Shaw Festival is presenting this classic with the loving care that it deserves, and the end result is a gripping production. The small stage of the Jackie Maxwell Studio Theatre presents the play in the round, so the audience intimately surrounds the dreary lives of Williams' characters. Written in 1944, and based on Williams' own family, we meet a down trodden mother and her adult son and daughter. The play is told as the son's memory , looking back 20 years. But the whole family seems to be plagued by all of their memories, whether happy or sad, seemingly leaving their present lives to be played out for naught.

Memory is very precious. It connects us to our past and helps guide us to our future. In Tennessee Williams' magnum opus THE GLASS MENAGERIE, memory is a force of gravity and as the season opener for The Tennessee Williams Theatre Company's fifth season, a grounded production is one rarely seen but feels so uncompromisingly right.
