Description

Shattered Globe Theatre will present Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, directed by Kevin Hagan. The Glass Menagerie launched Tennessee Williams’ professional career and is regarded by many to be his most biographical work — the characters and story emulating his own life more closely than any of his other plays.

Shattered Globe Artistic Director Kevin Hagan creates a mercurial production offering fresh reflections on the characters and story so familiar to audiences.
