The Glass Menagerie returned to Broadway following an engagement at the American Repertory Theater. The Broadway engagement, which began previews Sept. 5, was originally scheduled to end Jan. 5, 2014, but was extended through Feb. 23, 2014, at the Booth Theatre.
Tony Award-winning director John Tiffany and Tony-winning designer Bob Crowley set Williams' memory play about an overbearing mother and her fragile daughter, inspired by the playwright's own mother and sister, over a pool of reflective black liquid that surrounds the Wingfield apartment.
Underscored by the music of composer Nico Muhly, Tiffany's production is filled with moments of theatrical magic.
