Arizona Theatre Company reimagines iconic ‘Glass Menagerie’


Special to Independent Newsmedia

Arizona Theatre Company will celebrate the start of the new year with one of the most prolific plays of all time, “The Glass Menagerie.”

The iconic piece, written by Tennessee Williams, is a poetic and raw portrayal of a family on the brink of change that explores the complex web of love, longing, loyalty and constraints that bind us together. This reimagined classic, directed by ATC’s associate artistic director Chanel Bragg, the show will run Saturday, Jan. 21 through Saturday, Feb. 11 in Tucson, and Thursday, Feb. 16 through Sunday, March 5 in Phoenix.

“I want my ATC directorial debut to be a love letter to my state theater, a nationally recognized member of the League of Resident Theatres that prides itself on producing and presenting world-class productions which can be accessed in our own backyard,” Bragg shared in a statement.

Outside of her notable acting and directing accolades, Bragg has also co-founded two initiatives including The Soul of Broadway performance troupe and The United Colours of Arizona Theatre, with an emphasis to inspire diversity, equity, and true inclusion within the state’s local arts community.

Williams was a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright whose other impactful works include “A Streetcar Named Desire” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

Performances will take place at the Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave., in Tucson, and at the Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe St., in Phoenix.

Tickets start at $25, and are available at or 1-833-ATC-SEAT.

Founded in 1966 and celebrating its 55th season, Arizona Theatre Company is led by Executive Director Geri Wright and incoming Kasser Family Artistic Director Matt August.
