Charles McNulty examines the great playwright Tennessee William’s lesser known works to see what they can tell us about the writer himself as well as his plays that were written later in his career. Especially noted, is his focus on sex and sexuality and it’s place in society and each of our personal lives.
- Tennessee Williams is the greatest playwright America has ever produced.
- Somebody somewhere is always presenting “The Glass Menagerie,” an inviting vehicle for commanding actresses of a certain age.
- “A Streetcar Named Desire” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” harder to figure out on stage, tempt actors with their glorious precedents.
“No point in mincing words: Tennessee Williams is the greatest playwright America has ever produced.”
