The Glass Menagerie
By Tennessee Williams

Presented by Prime Stage Theatre

This warm, deeply personal drama is set in a cramped St. Louis apartment. Tom Wingfield introduces the audience to his family and this memory play of his past. Abandoned by the father, the Wingfields now live in a world of dreams and illusions. His mother, Amanda, refusing to accept the limitations of her children, romanticizes in the belief that she was a wealthy Southern belle with many "gentlemen callers." His sister, Laura, who he dearly loves, is painfully shy and lives in a fantasy world of her father's phonograph records and fragile, miniature, glass animals -- "the menagerie." Can Tom realize his dreams and bring hope to his family?

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
