THE PRETTY TRAP NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: August 2, 2011
Did He Like It?*
Before Tennessee Williams wrote one of his masterpieces, The Glass Menagerie, he wrote a one-act version called The Pretty Trap. Cause Célèbre will present the New York Premiere of this gem of a play directed by Antony Marsellis (Love Divided By, The Love Course). Katharine Houghton, who brought her fiancé, Sidney Poitier, home in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, is seated at a very different kind of dinner and plays one of Williams' quintessential female roles, Amanda Wingfield, the mother in The Glass Menagerie. The other characters are the same--Laura, Tom and the gentleman caller. But the tone is lighter and the ending is completely unexpected. Don't miss out on this engaging evening in a very limited engagement.
A Mother’s Familiar Optimism, Without the Familiar Letdown

"The last time most of America saw Katharine Houghton, she was playing the idealistic young white woman announcing her engagement to a noble black doctor (Sidney Poitier) in the 1967 film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” with Katharine Hepburn, her real-life aunt, and Spencer Tracy as her parents. Now here she is as Amanda Wingfield, Tennessee Williams’s faded belle and overbearing mother from “The Glass Menagerie.” "
