This is an opportunity to take in the early stirrings of Tennessee Williams’ talent as a playwright.
The source material — and the skills of Tennessee Williams’ posthumous collaborators — provides an evening of compelling theater.
The ART presents a staid production of Tennessee Williams’ talky chamber play about wanderers struggling to be released from their pain.
Eight by Tenn offers eight stories whose psychological depths and linguistic riches rival those of most full-length plays.
This superb production offers audiences a chance to discover or rediscover an American classic.
The biography is a remarkable read. It has all the hefty research you’d expect from a scholarly work, yet the story is told through prose fit for a great novel.
Tennessee Williams was a prolific writer, and each season the Festival presents an unfinished play or little known work from his vast canon.
The luminous physical beauty of the production staged by the American Repertory Theater, coupled with carefully crafted performances by its performers, makes this a Glass Menagerie to be cherished.
Tennessee Williams’ stature amongst American playwrights may be more secure then it was when he died in 1983, but companies like Beau Jest, when they stage inspired productions of previously neglected works, are expanding our appreciation of what kind of a dramatist he was.
Beau Jest Moving Theatre has returned to the early, one-act version of Williams’ script, and created a sometimes pleasant, sometimes nightmarish dreamscape.
