Sally Field, Joe Mantello to Star in Broadway’s ‘The Glass Menagerie’

Two-time Academy Award winner Sally Field and two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello will return to the Broadway stage next season to star in Tennessee Williams’s “The Glass Menagerie,”  producer Scott Rudin announced today.

Tony Award winner Sam Gold (“Fun Home”) will direct the production, which will also star Finn Wittrock and Madison Ferris, who will be making her Broadway debut in the role of Laura Wingfield.

“To say this is a dream come true is an understatement,” said Field.  “Working with the best of the best, from Sam Gold to Joe Mantello to Scott Rudin, on one of the greatest plays ever written is beyond thrilling.”

Gold first directed  “The Glass Menagerie” with an entirely Dutch cast at Toneelgroep Amsterdam. The Broadway production will feature the entire design team from the Toneelgroep Amsterdam production, including Andrew Lieberman(Scenic Design), Woiceich Dziedzic (Costume Design), Adam Silverman (Lighting Design), and Bray Poor (Sound Design).

“The experience I had doing this play in Amsterdam was life-changing, and the fact that we’ve managed to put together this cast to do it on Broadway is the most perfect outcome I could have imagined,” said Gold.

“The Glass Menagerie” will begin performances at Broadway’s Golden Theatre Feb. 14, with an official opening night set for March 23.
