Another one of Tennessee Williams classic masterpieces is headed to the Great White Way this fall! It’s bringing Zachary Quinto and Cherry Jones along to star.
Show Producer, Jeffrey Richards, announced on Thursday that he plans on transferring the American Repertory Theater’s production of The Glass Menagerie to New York for a 17-week only engagement starting this September.
Quinto, who plays Spock in the Star Trek reboots and recently mesmerized audiences in a off-Broadway production of Angels In America, will be making his Broadway debut as Tom. Jones, the two-time Tony Award winner for Doubt and The Heiress who played President Allison Taylor in the TV series 24, will play Amanda Wingfield.
They’ll be joined by Celia Keenan-Bolger, fresh off her role as Wendy in Broadway’s brilliant Peter and the Starcatcher, and Brian J. Smith, recently in The Columnist. John Tiffany, who helmed the Tony Award winning Best Musical Once, will direct the Williams classic. Performances begin September, 5 with an opening night set for Sept. 26. The venue will be a Shubert Theatre that has yet to be announced.
