An innocuous visit from a potential suitor unsettles the sheltered Wingfield family. Matriarch Amanda fiercely protects her adult children from the harshness of others, but doesn’t realize that her own eccentricities are the biggest threat to their psychological survival. Brimming with poetic language and indelible characters, this play about the enduring but limiting nature of love and family made Tennessee Williams a household name.

Please note that this production will use e-cigarettes and a water-based hazer.

Running Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission. Late seating at House Manager’s discretion.

"The Tennessee Williams classic is given a powerful staging in Pasadena."

"However, once the gentleman caller exits the stage, the energy is once again deflated. The final image we are left with is a director’s choice, not in the script, which references the real life tragic fate of the writer’s sister, a stage picture that feels both hopeless and a cliche."

"For Tennessee Williams, his 1944 autobiographical play, The Glass Menagerie changed his life forever. Upon its premiere in Chicago, then its transfer to Broadway, William’s went on to become one of America’s most beloved playwrights. The motto “write what you know” comes to mind when discussing Menagerie—there are glimpses of the writer and his family all over the play, especially in the character Tom. It’s a play that is a look at the strength, and simultaneous fragility that exist in any family unit, thus its themes still resonate even today. This classic play is brought to life by director Geoff Elliott and the rest of the players at A Noise Within Theatre company in a poignant revival that eloquently takes us back to simpler times to reacquaint audiences with this American classic."

"A Noise Within’s production of this classic Tennessee Williams play utilizes the memory play concept in some very creative and experimental ways."

"Director Geoff Elliott reinvigorates a 20th-century classic to stunning effect in A Noise Within’s 2019 revival of Tennessee Williams’ 1944 chef-d’oeuvre The Glass Menagerie, ... as memorable a revival of this American masterwork as any Tennessee Williams fan could possibly wish for."
