Zachary Quinto Enters the Fragile World of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie
The Glass Menagerie will be Quinto's first time on Broadway; he previously made his Off-Broadway bow as the lost Louis Ironson in the 2011 revival ofTony Kushner's Angels in America. His feature-film debut was as Spock in J.J. Abrams's 2009 reboot of the "Star Trek" franchise, and recently reprised in the sequel, "Star Trek: Into Darkness." Leonard Nimoy, 82, who originated the role and had casting approval, personally picked Quinto to go where only a few men have gone before.
A little time-travel plot-twisting allowed both—Nimoy as Spock Prime and Quinto as his younger self—to go along on these screen rides. "I think we have a strong physical resemblance, which, on some level or another, had to do with my getting cast, but now my connection with Leonard is much more emotional. I have great respect for him. We're close friends. He'll be at the opening of The Glass Menagerie."
