The Glass Menagerie

The Glass Menagerie emerged from playwright Tennessee Williams’s own past and furnished him a future in the theater. In a way, the same is true for Pittsburgh Public Theater—it was the first play the company ever staged. Part of the 40th-anniversary Season of Legends celebration, this revival reintroduces the troubled Wingfield family. Years after the departure of her runaway husband, former Southern belle Amanda remains delusionally hopeful about the marriage prospects of her daughter Laura, whose life has been derailed by extreme shyness, bouts of illness, and the demands of her job as a tiny-animal zookeeper. Left to support them is aspiring writer Tom, who keeps one eye on the exit door even as he encourages his mother by bringing home a coworker whom she hopes will prove a match for Laura. The play, which landed on Broadway after its Chicago debut in 1944, has lived a rich life on stage, screen, and radio, and catapulted the phrase “gentleman caller” into the cultural lexicon.

Pittsburgh Public Theater

Pittsburgh was about to fall off the theater map when Pittsburgh Public Theater debuted in 1975. Faced with shuttered ticket windows, a dwindling audience, and marquees holding messages like “Goodbye cruel world,” founders Joan Apt, Margaret Rieck, and Ben Shaktman were determined to make their company a success. And that determination paid off: their first season’s productions of The Glass Menagerie, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and Twelfth Night raked in critical acclaim and audience fanfare. Ticket sales climbed, and the trio eventually increased their season to six productions. Among these have been classics as well as plenty of new works, such as August Wilson’s King Hedley II and Michael Cristofer’s Amazing Grace.
