Randy Harrison to
join Glass Menagerie cast

Queer as Folk star Randy Harrison will join the cast of The Glass Menagerie at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. The show will begin previews on January 20 and is planned to run from January 26 to March 25.

Broadway and television veteran Harriet Harris will play Amanda Wingfield. She is well known for her work on Frasier and Desperate Housewives.

Harrison is continuing his theater experience, having played roles in Wicked on Broadway, A Midsummer Night's Dream, A Letter From Ethel Kennedy, Amadeus, and Equus.

The Glass Menagerie, by Tennessee Williams, is about the Wingfield family's struggle to hold its ground in 1939 St. Louis. Amanda, the matriarch of the family, is trying to maintain her dignity and provide for her family's future in the midst of the Great Depression. Her son, Tom, denies his own dreams to become the reluctant breadwinner after his father runs out on the family, while his frail sister, Laura, has retreated to a homebound life where she finds comfort caring for her collection of little glass animals. The arrival of Jim, a "gentleman caller," at the Wingfield residence could be a sign of hope or a disturbance that will shatter their fragile home. (The Advocate)
