ANN ARBOR – Performance Network Theatre announces an extension of Tennessee Williams' great American classic, "The Glass Menagerie." Additional performances are Nov. 1-4, with 2-for-$40 tickets and 2-for-$20 for students/seniors on Nov. 1 and Nov. 3 performances (discount available ONLY by calling the box office at 734-663-0681). Performance Network has proven "The Glass Menagerie" to remain relevant and prevalent for audiences and has received endless raves from patrons and critics.
Making her first acting appearance in five years, associate artistic director Carla Milarch graces the stage with a performance that shatters preconceived opinions on the overbearing character, Amanda Wingfield.
Director and Performance Network associate artist Tim Rhoze crafted an "other-wordly" concept for a traditional American classic. Typically, "The Glass Menagerie" takes place in a conventional household setting. Instead, Rhoze and set designer Monika Essen experimented with crooked footbridges amongst lace curtains and pantomimed props to augment the concept of a "memory play." "I think, even six-feet under, Williams is grinning as people try to produce his plays," said Rhoze.
Performance Network invites Southeastern Michigan to be engaged, challenged and inspired by the final performances of "The Glass Menagerie" at Ann Arbor's only professional theater. Tickets can be ordered at the Performance Network Box Office at 734-663-0681, online at www.performancenetwork.org or at Performance Network Theatre (120 East Huron St., Ann Arbor, 48104) Monday-Saturday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. or one hour before a performance.
