Gritty, poetic, and occasionally hilarious, The Glass Menagerie was Tennessee Williams’ first major hit and remains to this day one of the greatest dramas in history. The Greenway Court Theater is proud to present the 70th Anniversary production of Williams’ masterpiece. Be sure to experience this revealing, new take on this American classic.
Set in the Great Depression on the brink of WWII, The Glass Menagerie tells the gripping story of The Wingfield family. The mother Amanda, a remnant of her gentile, southern past, fights to prepare her fragile daughter and restless son for the harsh world that awaits them. A former classmate of the siblings comes into their home for a brief, magical evening that will alter their lives forever.

Tell Me I’m Pretty (Living with Cacophony) Written and Performed by Joshua Silverstein Directed by Diana Wyenn with musicians Gerry Doot, Merrick J Woodard, and Erik Hallsey With side-splitting humor and raw power, performance artist Joshua Silverstein returns to Greenway to deliver an explosive mix of storytelling, spoken word, vocal percussion, and hip-hop. Backed by a live band, Silverstein layers a series of playful and riveting narratives—full of humor, humanity, and wit—grounded in personal experience, and nuanced by the complexities and contradictions surrounding race, gender and, poverty in America. Plus, he reveals what it would have been like if Buster Keaton could beatbox AND explains why he’s the ideal biracial Batman. Boom!
