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.
