Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye Adapted by Lydia R. Diamond December 4 - 20

The Glass Menagerie By Tennessee Williams | March 18 - April 3

The Glass Menagerie marked a crucial turning point in American theatre, and forever changed the life of its then unknown author. Williams’ elegiac masterpiece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway – the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this “memory play” has made it one of America’s most powerful, timeless, and compelling works of theatre. Renowned for its vivid characters, exquisitely written dialogue, and absorbing story, The Glass Menagerie promises to move, to entrance and to dazzle.
