Zachary Quinto, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Brian J. Smith Join Cherry Jones for A.R.T.'s Glass Menagerie
By Adam Hetrick
Drama Desk nominee Zachary Quinto, Tony Award nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger and Brian J. Smith will join Tony Award winner Cherry Jones in the American Repertory Theater production of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, which will be staged by Tony Award-winning Once director John Tiffany.
Williams' poignant 1945 memory play about an overbearing mother and her fragile daughter will begin performances Feb. 2, 2013, in Cambridge, MA, for a run through March 17, 2013. The Glass Menagerie will officially open Feb. 6, 2013.
Jones, who will play Amanda Wingfield, earned Tony Awards for The Heiress and Doubt. Quinto (Angels in America, "Star Trek") will portray Tom, with Keenan-Bolger (Peter and the Starcatcher, Spelling Bee) as Laura and Smith (The Columnist, Come Back Little Sheba) as the Gentleman Caller.
The Glass Menagerie will reunite Tiffany's Tony Award-winning Once creative team. It will have scenic and costume design by Bob Crowley, lighting design by Natasha Katz and sound design by Clive Goodwin.
According to A.R.T., "The Glass Menagerie is Tennessee Williams' poetic masterpiece, anchored by the ageing southern belle Amanda Wingfield, who hopes for her son Tom to fulfill her dreams of finding the perfect 'gentleman caller' for her shy and damaged daughter Laura."
In addition to staging Once, Tiffany is also the director of the acclaimed National Theatre of Scotland production of Black Watch.
