In February, The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams running from the 26th through the 28th, 2009.

Tom is torn between family obligation and his deep desire to escape his domineering mother, Amanda, and his frail sister, Laura.

In its South Florida Premiere at New Theatre, this sharp, funny, and engaging work keeps audiences at the edge of their seats hinged on each plot twist. Jackie and Mary are half-sisters whose mother’s death leaves them in possession of a rare stamp collection, while battling over who owns the stamps three dealers have designs of their own. Who is friend and who is foe?
