A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, “The Glass Menagerie” is one of the most famous and most produced plays of the modern theatre, and resonates in today’s world as if written yesterday. In March 1945, the play opened on Broadway, where it won the prestigious New York Drama Critics Circle Award. This highly personal, explicitly autobiographical play earned Williams fame, fortune and critical respect, and it marked the beginning of a successful career. Williams won another Drama Critics Circle Award and a Pulitzer Prize for “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Williams won the same two prizes again in 1955, for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” This production, directed and designed by Artistic Director Lon Winston, will feature TRTC’s lead actress and Associate Artistic Director Valerie Haugen as Amanda Wingfield, one of Williams’ most celebrated characters. Guest actors include John Goss (last seen on the TRTC stage as El Gallo in “The Fantasticks”) as the son Tom and the play’s narrator, Kelly Ish plays Laura, and Billy Challis as the Gentleman Caller. The play runs Feb. 26-27, March 5-7 and 11-13, with a preview on Feb. 25. Make your plans now to attend this classic drama. Tickets and information available at or by calling 963-8200.
