Highlights From The Glass Menagerie Starring Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto
Tony Award winner Cherry Jones, Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger and Zachary Quinto are a family adrift in a sea of memory in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' acclaimed 1945 drama The Glass Menagerie, now playing at the Booth Theatre. Tony Award-winning director John Tiffany and Tony-winning designer Bob Crowley set Williams' memory play about an overbearing mother and her fragile daughter, inspired by the playwright's own mother and sister, over a pool of reflective black liquid that surrounds the Wingfield apartment.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
