Sally Field is planning her long-awaited return to Broadway in a new revival of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, according to the website Showbiz411.

Field is aiming to take on the classic role of Amanda Wingfield this fall in a production helmed by Fun Home Tony winner Sam Gold. She previously played the role in a 2004 Kennedy Center mounting under the direction of Gregory Mosher. Field made her Broadway debut in Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? in 2002. She is the recipient of Academy Awards for her performances in the films Norma Rae and Places in the Heart, and received 3 Emmy Awards for her work in television.

The Glass Menagerie was last seen on Broadway during the 2013-14 season, in a revival directed by John Tiffany that starred Cherry Jones, Zachary Quinto, Celia Keenan-Bolger, and Brian J. Smith. This would be the classic drama's seventh Broadway revival since the work premiered in 1946.

No official information about the prospective production has been officially confirmed.
