Weaving the work of legendary songwriters such as Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Loesser, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Cab Calloway and the Gershwins, the story moves through time and place to highlight a slick slice of yesteryear and capture a beloved American era.

The Glass Menagerie

By Tennessee Williams
March 5-8, 2015, 7:30 p.m. (2:30 p.m. Sunday)
Tickets $10, free with PJC ID

Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. Tom is driven nearly to distraction by his mother's nagging and seeks escape in alcohol and the world of the movies. Jim, the caller, is a nice ordinary fellow who is at once pounced upon by Amanda as a possible husband for Laura. In spite of her crude and obvious efforts to entrap the young man, he and Laura manage to get along very nicely, and momentarily Laura is lifted out of herself into a new world. The world of illusion that Amanda and Laura have striven to create in order to make life bearable collapses about them.

A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre.
