Saturday, March 26th, is a special day for theatre buffs around the world--it's the 100th anniversary of Tennesse Williams' birth!

Tennesse Williams was one of the most influential playwrights in the history of theatre, and so his would-be 100th birthday is a huge deal.

Join in on the fun this Saturday starting at noon as Threshold repertory theatre hosts a celebration at Memminger Auditorium, 56 Beaufain Street. You'll get to enjoy readings, free public lectures, and other events that will culminate at 7:30 p.m. with a performance of one of Williams' most famous plays: The Glass Menagerie.

While many of the readings and lectures are free, the evening peformance of The Glass Menagerie is not. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at eTix.com. (Also note that this isn't your only chance to see the play--there are also shows on March 24th, 7:30 p.m., $10; March 25th, 7:30 p.m., $10; and March 27th, 2:30 p.m., $10.)
