The Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, which opened on March 22 and which was originally scheduled for a limited run through July 17, will close early on July 3.

The production stars Jessica Lange and Christian Slater, along with Sarah Paulson and Joey Collins (who recently assumed the role of the Gentleman Caller after the departure of Josh Lucas). David Leveaux directs. At the time of the show's closing, it will have played 30 previews and 119 performances.

In his review of the production for TheaterMania, David Finkle stated, "Lange is fatally off-putting as a woman whose underpinnings of humanity need to be evident in order for her to be not only tolerated and understood but forgiven. Throughout the play's seven scenes (presented here in two acts), famous sequences are underdone by being overdone."
