Yesterday, we started our conversation with Austin Pendleton, who is co-directing a new take on The Glass Menagerie, with Peter Bloch. The show begins performances October 3 at the Wild Project.
Today, we continue the conversation.
Tennesee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, has seen innumerable variations, but this take will lean towards horror and thriller, with a Sean Hagerty-penned score inspired by The Exorcist movie soundtrack. The show will be presented as if Tom Wingfield is reliving the story through a nightmarish lens.
Starring in the Ruth Stage production will be Ginger Grace as Amanda Wingfield, Matt de Rogatis as Tom, Alexandra Rose as Laura Wingfield, and Spencer Scott as The Gentlemen Caller. The creative team includes set designer Jessie Bonaventure, lighting designer Steven Wolf, and sound designer Jesse Meckl.
The Glass Menagerie: The Wild Project, 195 East 3rd Street, beginning October 3 – October 20th.
