THEATER – Stream on Demand. Get your tickets for local production of ‘The Glass Menagerie’ by Tennessee Williams. The play is a tender, and sometimes bitter, memory of the Wingfield family with matriarch Amanda Wingfield watching over her children Tom and Laura and attempting to control their lives. Tickets, $15. Presented by Stuff of Dreams Productions. Visit www.facebook.com/GEStevensOneonta/
Stuff of Dreams and Bigger Boat Productions announce the production of Tennessee Williams’ classic drama “The Glass Menagerie,” which will stream on May 28, 29 and on June 4, 5 via the ShowTix4U platform.
According to a media release, “The play is a tender, and sometimes bitter, memory of the Wingfield family, with matriarch Amanda Wingfield watching over her children, Tom and Laura, and attempting to control their lives. Her one great wish is to have a ‘Gentleman Caller’ come see Laura, marry her, and take her out of her life of illusions with her collection of glass animals. Tom’s ambition is to free himself from his mother’s nagging and get away from their dingy St. Louis apartment.”
Local actors Michael Tamburrino, Lissa Sidoli, Caitlin Liberati and Casey Thomas tell Williams’ story, under the direction of Gary E. Stevens.
Tickets are $15 for the video-on-demand event and are on sale now.
