Directors Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch reteam to helm a chilling new version of Tennessee Williams’ masterwork at the Wild Project, ushering in the Halloween season. More…
From the show:
After two critically acclaimed runs in 2018 of "Wars of the Roses," directors Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch reunite with actor Matt de Rogatis to take on the American classic, "The Glass Menagerie." In this disquieting production, the tormented Tom relives the story of his time in the Wingfield’s St. Louis apartment, circa 1939, as if he were remembering it through the lens of a spooky dream.
Dimly lit and surrealistic, the set itself will consist of props made of glass and the actors will live in a chilling, dreamlike world. Taking inspiration from *The Exorcist soundtrack, Sean Hagerty writes the score for this “Wes Craven meets Tennessee Williams” production. Allison Hohman designs the sound for the Wingfield house of horrors.
