Peek into ‘Glass’ future

'Menagerie's' revival has a starry night

Tennessee Williams wrote “The Glass Menagerie,” in 1945, before sequel mania gripped the entertainment world.

At Tuesday night’s Broadway premiere of the starry revival, its cast and director speculated on what part two would be.

“Amanda and Laura will survive. All of Tennessee Williams’ women are survivors!” claimed Jessica Lange, who showed up at the Bryant Park Grill party in distinctly winter-survival gear.

“Laura will be fine until Amanda dies,” offered Sarah Paulson.

Christian Slater was less upbeat. “Laura is Tennessee’s sister, Rose, and we know what happened. She had a lobotomy,” said the play’s Tom.

David Leveaux was equally pessimistic. “Laura doesn’t speak for the play’s last five minutes,” the director noted. “There’s a reason Williams set it in 1938. They couldn’t get a job at McDonald’s.”
