Known for his work on HBO's "In Treatment" as well as in the film "Dead Poets Society," Charles will appear as Jim, the Gentleman Caller, in the Long Wharf production, which will also feature the previously announced stage veteran Ivey as the overbearing family matriarch Amanda Wingfield. Artistic director Gordon Edelstein directs Menagerie, which will play through June 7. Additional casting and creative duties will be announced shortly.
Williams' 1945 memory play centers on the timid Laura Wingfield, her mother Amanda and her brother Tom, who longs for a world beyond his crippled family.
