Roundabout Theatre Company in association with Long Wharf Theatre will present director Gordon Edelstein's recent Long Wharf production at Off-Broadway's Laura Pels Theatre. Performances will begin March 5, 2010, with an official opening scheduled for March 24. Ivey will be joined onstage by Patch Darragh (Tom Wingfield) and Keira Keeley (Laura Wingfield); both Darragh and Keeley also starred in the Long Wharf run. Additional casting for the limited engagement will be announced shortly.
"In this fresh interpretation of Williams' haunting memory play," press notes state, "Tom Wingfield (Patch Darragh) sits writing in a hotel room, trying to forge his past into art. Soon Tom's space is overtaken by the cramped apartment he once shared with his mother Amanda (Judith Ivey), his beloved sister Laura (Keira Keeley) and unrequited dreams as fragile as Laura's collection of tiny glass animals. There, Tom relives the Gentleman Caller's visit – the night that changed his family forever."
The design team includes two-time Tony winner Michael Yeargan (sets), two-time Tony winner Martin Pakledinaz (costumes), two-time Tony winner Jennifer Tipton (lights) and David Budries (sound).
This production of Menagerie premiered May 20 at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, CT.
Show times will be Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30 PM with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 PM.
