The Glass Menagerie

More than 70 years ago, a man of not-yet-realized significance debuted a seemingly simple, four-character play that would launch his career and help him become one of the most highly regarded dramatic playwrights to date. The Glass Menagerie was not Tennessee Williams' first play, but it was his first success — a thinly veiled examination of his own troubled family and childhood via the characters of Tom, Laura, Amanda and Jim. It's a piece that has aged quite well over the years, with the characters and the deeper concepts they explore remaining relevant even today. New to the work of Williams? Longtime fan? For the next three weeks, you can catch this American classic over at the Black Box Theatre, performed as intended with intimate staging and Williams' signature dialogue. 7 p.m., Black Box Theatre, 1367 Pecan St., $10-$20, blackboxdrama.com, 330-1798. — Bridgett Harris

Price: $10-$20
