New York: Josh Lucas will have played his final performance as The Gentleman Caller in The Glass Menagerie on June 5th. He has left the production to begin work on the upcoming remake of The Poseidon Adventure.
Understudy Joey Collins has taken over the role until someone can permanently replace Lucas.
The Glass Menagerie currently stars Jessica Lange, Christian Slater, and Sarah Paulson. It will end its run at The Barrymore Theater on July 17th.
The Glass Menagerie tells the story of a St. Louis family struggling to cope with the harsh realities of the Great Depression and the bitter memories that haunt them. Revealed in flashback, the play follows the lives of shoe factory worker Tom, torn between his role as the family breadwinner and the desire to lead a life of his own. His abrasive mother, Amanda, once a Southern socialite, tries to maintain her dignity amidst the gloom of the tenement, and secure a future for her painfully shy daughter, Laura, who has retreated to an imaginary world caring for her collection of glass animals.
