Before we sign off for the day, we want to celebrate the birthday of Tennessee Williams! The prolific American writer was born on March 26, 1911. What’s your favorite Tennessee Williams play? We can’t pick just one!
“This is not a humble letter but a bewildered and somewhat volatile letter….”
In honor of Tennessee Williams’ birthday, take a look at this AWESOME letter from Williams to Audrey Wood taken from the NYPL digital archives.
Today would have been the 100th birthday of renowned, Tony Award-winning and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tennessee Williams, who penned “The Glass Menagerie,” “Streetcar Named Desire,” and “The Rose Tattoo” among many others. He also wrote “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof,” so this doubles as our weekly Caturday entry. So happy birthday Tennessee, and happy Caturday everyone! The photo above of Tennessee is from 1941 and was taken by Vandamm Studios. It’s currently in our Billy Rose Theatre Division at the Library For The Performing Arts.
