TENNESSEE WILLIAMS IN THE 21ST CENTURY—RESPONSES, INTERPRETATIONS, PERSPECTIVES

What does the future hold for the plays Tennessee Williams? While his plays continue to be performed and still resonate in the popular imagination, the longer his work remains part of our culture, the more it is and will be reconsidered, reimagined, and put under a theatrical microscope. This panel of distinguished theater makers, directors, and playwrights including Robert Bray, Augustin J Correro, Lisa D’Amour, and Maxwell Williams will contemplate how Williams’s plays are now being, and will be, staged with respect to experimentation, adaptation, expectations, and diversity in casting, as well as the how the lesser-known and later work may affect the public’s appreciation of his greatest plays. Moderated by Aimee Hayes.
