Publisher Comments:

The Glass Menagerie marked a crucial turning point in American theater, and forever changed the life of its then unknown author. Williams s elegiac master- piece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this memory play have made it one of America s most powerful, timeless, and compelling plays. The introduction by Tony Kushner sparkles with the kind of rich, unique insight that only a fellow playwright could convey.The Deluxe Centennial Edition includes: Tony Kushner s astonishing introduction. The pioneering essay, The Homosexual in Society, by Tennessee s friend Robert Duncan, and poems by Hart Crane, E. E. Cummings, Walt Whitman, and Tennessee Williams, which Kushner discusses as sources of inspiration. The Pretty Trap, a cheerful one-act run-up to The Glass Menagerie. The Portrait of a Girl in Glass, Tennessee s short-story variation of the play Photographs of great actresses who have played Amanda, and stills from various stage and film incarnations of The Glass Menagerie. Williams s classic essay about fame, The Catastrophe of Success. The playwright s original Production Notes. The 1944 opening-night rave reviews from Chicago. An essay by the distinguished Williams scholar Allean Hale, Inside The Menagerie, provides autobiographical particulars about Williams s family life in St. Louis. A gorgeous new jacket design by Rodrigo Corral.
