John Tiffany's acclaimed Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie will keep the candles ignited a little longer. The production, which originated at American Repertory Theater, has extended its run at the Booth Theatre through February 23, 2014. Originally scheduled to close on January 5, the drama officially opened on September 26 to rave reviews.

Two-time Tony Award winner Cherry Jones leads the company of The Glass Menagerie as domineering matriarch Amanda Wingfield. She is joined by Zachary Quinto as narrator Tom, Celia Keenan-Bolger as the painfully shy Laura, and Brian J. Smith as Jim, the Gentleman Caller. The creative team includes Bob Crowley (scenic and costume design), Natasha Katz (lighting design), Clive Goodwin (sound design), Nico Muhly (original music), and Steven Hoggett (movement).
