The Schwartz Center for the Arts has partnered with the Walnut Street Theatre to stage “The Glass Menagerie” in Dover March 4. The show, which celebrates the centennial of Tennessee Williams’ birth, comes with all the production values of the Walnut’s successful January production. It also forges a relationship between the iconic Philly venue and the Schwartz, says executive director Sandra F. Conner. (Next year, the partnership offers “Proof.” Stay tuned.) Literary scholars contend that “The Glass Menagerie” is Williams’ autobiographical story, since its characters are loosely based on the author’s troubled upbringing. The story centers on a Southern family desperate to escape a poverty-stricken reality. The play is both beautiful and painful to watch, but illustrates perfectly Williams’ enormous gifts.
