The revival of the play starring Zachary Quinto, Cherry Jones, and Celia Keenan-Bolger will begin previews on September 5 at the Booth Theatre.
The Glass Menagerie ran at A.R.T. in Cambridge, MA from February 6 to March 17 to much critical acclaim. The Broadway production, which features the entire original A.R.T. cast, officially begins on September 26, and will play a limited, 17-week run through January 5, 2014.
