ABOUT THE SHOW. A family drama of great tenderness, charm, and beauty, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is an icon of the American theater. The story follows Amanda Wingfield, a remnant of Southern gentility now living in a dingy apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. The father has deserted them, leaving Tom to support his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable. When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda, and Laura have each created to make life bearable shatter.
ABOUT THT REP'S TIERED TICKETING. To cultivate community and equity, THT Rep offers an innovative tiered ticket pricing model that lets patrons choose what they pay based on the honor system and the following information:
- Subsidized Tickets ($12 + $3 Fee). To make our shows accessible, we offer this lowest price point for students, seniors or anyone else served by this option.
- Standard Full Price Tickets ($36 + $3 Fee). Did you know "full price" tickets rarely, if ever, cover the costs associated with producing a show? Given that knowledge, we believe people are honest and honorable, and that those who can pay this standard price of admission will do so as a gesture of support for our work.
- True Cost Tickets ($56 + $3 Fee). For ticket sales to cover all the direct costs associated with producing our season of work, we’d have to sell every seat to every performance at this price point.
- Angel Tickets ($112 + $3 Fee). For ticket sales to cover all our costs and ensure a sustainable future for THT Rep, we’d have to sell every seat to every performance at this price point.
- Angel Plus Tickets ($112 + $3 Fee + $85 Donation). All the same magic as an Angel Ticket, plus an $85 tax-deductible gift to THT Rep's $1.5 million matching grant challenge, courtesy of the McDonough Family Foundation.
