The Glass Menagerie marked a crucial turning point in American theater, and forever changed the life of its then unknown author. Williams's elegiac master- piece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway -- the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this "memory play" have made it one of America's most powerful, timeless, and compelling plays. The introduction by Tony Kushner sparkles with the kind of rich, unique insight that only a fellow playwright could convey. The Deluxe Centennial Edition includes - Tony Kushner's astonishing introduction - The pioneering essay, "The Homosexual in Society," by Tennessee's friend Robert Duncan, and poems by Hart Crane, E. E. Cummings, Walt Whitman, and Tennessee Williams, which Kushner discusses as sources of inspiration - "The Pretty Trap," a cheerful one-act run-up toThe Glass Menagerie. - "The Portrait of a Girl in Glass," Tennessee's short-story variation of the pla - Photographs of great actresses who have played Amanda, and stills from various stage and film incarnations ofThe Glass Menagerie. - Williams's classic essay about fame, "The Catastrophe of Success. - The playwright's original "Production Notes. - The 1944 opening-night rave reviews from Chicago - An essay by the distinguished Williams scholar Allean Hale, "Inside The Menagerie," provides autobiographical particulars about Williams's family life in St. Louis - A gorgeous new jacket design by Rodrigo Corral.

Review:

The revolutionary newness of The Glass Menagerie . . . was in its poetic lift, but an underlying hard dramatic structure was what earned the play its right to sing poetically. -- Arthur Miller

With the advent of The Glass Menagerie . . . Tennessee Williams emerged as a poet-playwright and a unique new force in theatre throughout the world. -- Lyle Leverich in Tom: The Unknown Tennessee Williams

Seeing The Glass Menagerie was like stumbling on a flower in a junkyard Williams had pushed language and character to the front of the stage as never before. --Arthur Miller"

Delicate and perceptive, The Glass Menagerie inhabits a half-world between comedy and tragedy. "
