Opening July 5 at Cal Shakes is Tennessee Williams’ American classic, The Glass Menagerie. Starring acclaimed actress Karen Aldridge (The Get Down on Netflix; Chicago Med / Fire on CBS, Mathilda on Broadway) this all new production takes a fresh look at the American Dream through the eyes of those whose connection is most fragile. Tom and his sister Laura live with their devoted mother, Amanda, a former Southern debutante. When Amanda arranges for a “Gentleman Caller” to come for dinner, her all-too-clear intentions force Laura and Tom to confront—in their own ways—the shattering weight of her overbearing expectations.

Performing at the beautiful outdoor Bruns Amphitheater in the Orinda hills, audiences are invited to enjoy the incredible surroundings before the production! The Bruns open two hours before each show, and audiences can picnic onsite—bring your own or enjoy food from our gourmet café—sit in on a free conversation about the production 45-minutes prior to curtain, or you can even explore the groves and land surrounding the amphitheater!
