‘The Glass Menagerie’ will play Broadway!

The American Repertory Theater’s recent production of “The Glass Menagerie,” starring the Tony Award-winning actress Cherry Jones as Amanda Wingfield and Zachary Quinto as her son Tom, will transfer to Broadway this September for a 17-week run, the show’s New York producers confirmed on Thursday.

This revival of the Tennessee Williams play received strong critical acclaim during its wintertime run at the theater in Cambridge, Mass.; the New York producers – Jeffrey Richards and John N. Hart – quickly began eyeing a move to Broadway, but theater availability and the actors’ schedules dictated a fall 2013 opening. The production, directed by the Tony winner John Tiffany (“Once”), will begin preview performances on Sept. 5 at a Shubert theater to be announced later; opening night is set for Sept. 26, and the run is scheduled through early January 2014.
