On Stage This Week - "The Glass Menagerie"

Taking the stage this week at Marshall University is a real theatre classic - The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. The play will be presented at the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center.

Here's a description:
No play in the modern American Theatre has so captured the imagination and heart of the American public as Tennessee William’s The Glass Menagerie.

As William’s first popular success, it launched the brilliant, if somewhat controversial, career of one of America’s per-eminent playwrights. Since its premier in Chicago in 1944, Menagerie has been the bravura piece for great actresses from Jessica Tandy to Joanne Woodward, and is studied and performed in classrooms and theatres around the world.
The show starts Wednesday, Nov. 19 and runs through Saturday, Nov. 22. All the shows start at 8:00 p.m.

Highly recommended!
