The Ritz Theatre Company Brings Tennessee Williams’ Classic The Glass Menagerie to Our Main Stage

Previews Thursday, March 14th;
Opens Friday March 15th;
Runs Through Sunday March 31

A drama of great tenderness, charm, and beauty, The Glass Menagerie, penned by master playwright Tennessee Williams, is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre.

Set in St. Louis in the 1930s, the play focuses on the Wingfield family with Tom, who is torn between his obligation to his family and his desire to break away from his overbearing mother Amanda and his frail sister Laura, whose memory he cannot escape. More than seventy years after its first premiere, Williams’ most personal work for the stage continues to captivate audiences around the world.

Ritz director Matthew Weil adds: "The Glass Menagerie is certainly a classic, written by arguably the best American playwright of all time. Many of the issues addressed in the show are just as timely today as they were when the show was originally written and produced."
