9783454168304: The Glass Menagerie. (Lernmaterialien)

A new edition of this beloved classic―with a new Tony Kushner introduction―to honor the centennial year, 2011, of America's greatest playwright.

When it opened in Chicago in 1944, The Glass Menagerie marked a turning point in American theater and in the life of its then unknown author. Tennessee Williams’s elegiac masterpiece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway―and today the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this “memory play” endure.

In a cramped St. Louis apartment the aging Southern belle Amanda Wingfield, long preoccupied by memories of gentlemen callers and a world that no longer exists, is energized by the dilemma of how to save what remains of her family. Her restless son Tom ― factory worker, aspiring poet, and the narrator of the play ― is swept up in Amanda’s comic and heartbreaking schemes to find Laura, his agonizingly shy and handicapped sister, a husband.

This new edition of The Glass Menagerie comes with an exciting introduction by the playwright Tony Kushner. Williams’s classic essay on the effect of swift and unexpected fame, “The Catastrophe of Success,” his original production notes, and a new essay on the autobiographical background of the play by the distinguished Williams scholar Allean Hale are also included.

About the Author:

Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) is the acclaimed author of many books of letters, short stories, poems, essays, and a large collection of plays, including The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, Camino Real, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Orpheus Descending, The Night of the Iguana, and The Rose Tattoo.

Tony Kushner is the author of over two dozen plays, including Angels in America, for which he received the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for the best play of 1993.

Allean Hale, writer and poet, was the leading authority on the early life and late plays of Tennessee Williams.

From AudioFile:

Despite being digitally remastered, this 1964 full-cast production featuring four of America's best stage actors doesn't quite work. They sound as if they're reading lines, rather than acting--they don't manage to make the listener suspend reality and enter the life of the play. Their Southern accents seem forced and the language stilted. In addition, as the actors wander in and out of range of the microphones, their voices strengthen, then fade. The third CD of the package contains rare recordings of Williams himself reading the opening dialogue and closing scene of the play, as well as several poems. It's interesting listening to his slightly nasal, gentle drawl, yet all in all, some archival material is best left on the shelf.
