Judith Ivey cast in ‘Menagerie’

Actress/director to play Amanda at Wharf Theater

NEW HAVEN –Judith Ivey will return to the stage this season, playing Amanda in Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie” at New Haven’s Long Wharf Theater.

The two-time Tony winner (“Steaming,” “Hurlyburly”) has turned to helming in recent years with shows such as “Southern Comforts,” “Fugue,” “Secrets of a Soccermom,” and the Gotham-bound musical “Vanities,” which opens its Broadway tryout in August at the Pasadena Playhouse.

Ivey, whose TV credits include a stint in “Designing Women,” will play the Williams matriarch in a production helmed by Long Wharf a.d. Gordon Edelstein, who also is directing “Some Americans Abroad” at Off Broadway’s Second Stage this summer.

“Menagerie” will play May 13-June 7.
