Glass Menagerie, With Cherry Jones, Zachary Quinto, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Begins A.R.T. Run
By Adam Hetrick
Tony Award winner Cherry Jones presides over a world of memory and melancholy in the American Repertory Theater production of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, which also stars Tony Award nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger and Drama Desk nominee Zachary Quinto. Performances begin Feb. 2 in Cambridge, MA.
Tony Award-winning Once director John Tiffany helms the poignant 1945 memory play about an overbearing mother and her fragile daughter that will officially open Feb. 6 for a run through March 17.
Jones, who plays Amanda Wingfield, earned Tony Awards for The Heiress and Doubt. Quinto (Angels in America, "Star Trek") portrays Tom, with Keenan-Bolger (Peter and the Starcatcher, Spelling Bee) as Laura and Brian J. Smith (The Columnist, Come Back Little Sheba) as the Gentleman Caller.
The Glass Menagerie reunites Tiffany's Tony Award-winning Once creative team. It has scenic and costume design by Bob Crowley, lighting design by Natasha Katz and sound design by Clive Goodwin.
According to A.R.T., "The Glass Menagerie is Tennessee Williams' poetic masterpiece, anchored by the ageing southern belle Amanda Wingfield, who hopes for her son Tom to fulfill her dreams of finding the perfect 'gentleman caller' for her shy and damaged daughter Laura."
In addition to staging Once, Tiffany is also the director of the acclaimed National Theatre of Scotland production of Black Watch.
