Tennessee Williams' haunting family portrait The Glass Menagerie will kick off the 2008-2009 season at Florida Repertory Theatre.

Amanda, Laura and Tom Wingfield, the characters central to Menagerie, take to the Florida stage Sept. 23-Oct. 12. Garson Kanin's long-running Broadway comedy Born Yesterday will follow, playing Oct. 24-Nov. 16.

Indian Blood, A.R. Gurney's 2005 Off-Broadway holiday-themed work, runs Nov. 28-Dec. 21, while Brian Friel's Tony Award-winning drama Dancing at Lughnasa kicks off the new year, Jan. 9-Feb. 1, 2009.

Two works from Joe DiPietro, including the world premiere of The Last Romance, will run back to back at Florida Rep.
