ABOUT THE PLAY
No modern theater play has captured the American public’s imagination and heart as Tennessee Williams’s The Glass Menagerie. As Williams’s first popular success, it launched the brilliant, if somewhat controversial, career of the U.S. pre-eminent lyric playwright.
The Glass Menagerie is a memory play with strong autobiographical elements, featuring characters based on its author, his histrionic mother, and his mentally fragile sister. In writing the play, Williams drew on an earlier short story and a screenplay he had written under the title of The Gentleman Caller. The play premiered in Chicago in 1944. After a shaky start, it was championed by Chicago critics Ashton Stevens and Claudia Cassidy, whose enthusiasm helped build audiences so the producers could move the play to Broadway, where it won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award in 1945. The Glass Menagerie was Williams’ first successful play; he became one of America’s most highly regarded playwrights.
