The Walnut Street Theatre will open its historic first national tour in its 202-year production of The Glass Menagerie Thursday February 10 (7p.m.) and Friday February 11 (8p.m.) in Bloomsburg’s Carver Hall.
The Glass Menagerie written by Tennessee Williams in 1944 and was based off of his short story “Portrait of a Girl in Glass.” The fantastically written play is introduced to the audience as one of Tom’s memories of his mother (Amanda) and sister (Laura), and stays as his memories throughout. (Be sure to check out the character guide below.)
“Under the leadership of producing artistic director Bernard Havard, Walnut Street Theatre’s tour of The Glass Menagerie marks the 100th anniversary of Tennessee Williams’ birth. The theatre itself, located in Philadelphia, is the oldest continuously operating theatre in the U.S. Among the legendary performers who appeared on its stage are Marlon Brando, Sidney Poitier and Katharine Hepburn.”
