Quotes & Highlights
“This is a warm, rich play full of that compassion and understanding and that simple poetry of the heart that is Mr. Williams at his shining, gentle best.” —_The New York Times _
Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Tom Ross
Featuring Beth Wilmurt, Charles Dean, Marcia Pizzo and Thomas Gorrebeeck, along with Amy Crumpacker, Ryan Tasker, Leanne Borghesi and Beth Deitchman
Set shortly before World War I in Glorious Hill, Mississippi, The Eccentricities of a Nightingale is a story of irrepressible longing and rebellion.
Filled with all of the majestic themes, oversized characters, and gentle poetry that earned Williams his exalted position in American theater, The Eccentricities of a Nightingale was written in 1951 and debuted on Broadway in 1976 after being fine-tuned by Williams for 25 years; more than just a revision of his 1948 play Summer and Smoke, it became a radically different work of art.
