Amy Adams to make London stage debut in ‘The Glass Menagerie’

Hollywood actress Amy Adams will make her West End stage debut in The Glass Menagerie at the Duke of York’s Theatre in 2022, it has been announced.

Nominated for six Academy Awards the acclaimed actress will play the role of family matriarch Amanda Wingfield – a faded Southern belle who attempts to get her son Tom to bring round ‘gentlemen callers’ for her reclusive daughter Laura. 

“I am so honored and excited to be a part of bringing The Glass Menagerie to the stage in the West End! I have always felt a strong pull towards the work of Tennessee Williams and to this deeply personal story. I am so grateful to be working with the brilliant Jeremy Herrin and with all of the talented cast and creative team. I look forward to the shared experience of theater. See you in 2022!” said Adams

Adams, who started out her career in dinner theatre shows, is now one of the most in demand actors in Hollywood. Amy Adam’s six Oscar nominations include Junebug (2005), Doubt (2008), The Fighter (2010), The Master (2012), American Hustle (2013) and Vice (2018).
