Famed playwright Tennessee Williams was born March 26, 1911. Williams made his Broadway debut in 1945 with The Glass Menagerie, igniting a four-decade career that included seminal works such as A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and more. The writer died February 25, 1983, but his work continues to be a fixture on the Main Stem.

Throughout his career, Williams won a Drama Desk Award, four New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, a Tony Award, and two Pulitzer Prizes.

Williams was last on Broadway with a Trip Cullman-helmed production of The Rose Tattoo, starring Oscar winner Marisa Tomei.
