Another Tennessee Williams play “The Glass Menagerie” is getting the Broadway-revival treatment with A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof both revived in the past year. Making his Broadway debut, openly gay Zachary Quinto will find time from his warp-drive press rounds for Star Trek and take on the role of Tom—the play’s narrator that many feel is modeled after Tennessee’s own life. This will mark Quinto first time on Broadway, his New Yorth theater debut was in an Off-Broadway-version of Angels in America.
The 17-week engagement begins in September and also stars Cherry Jones who is a two-time Tony Award winner for Doubt and The Heiress. [BBC]
