Press Releases

Cambridge, MA – The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) is proud to announce that its production of The Glass Menagerie was nominated today for seven Tony Awards for its run on Broadway, and its production of All the Way was nominated for two Tony Awards. The Glass Menagerie premiered at the A.R.T.’s home, the Loeb Drama Center last season, and All the Way opened the A.R.T.’s current season last fall.
The list, now in its 11th year, recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals. As TIME has described the list in the past, “The TIME 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it’s not a list of the smartest people in the world, it’s a list of the most influential people in the world. They’re scientists, they’re thinkers, they’re philosophers, they’re leaders, they’re icons, they’re artists, they’re visionaries. People who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people.”
