 The Schwartz Center for the Arts has partnered with the Walnut Street Theatre to stage “The Glass Menagerie” in Dover March 4. The show, which celebrates the centennial of Tennessee Williams’ birth, comes with all the production values of the Walnut’s successful January production. It also forges a relationship between the iconic Philly venue and the Schwartz, says executive director Sandra F. Conner. (Next year, the partnership offers “Proof.” Stay tuned.) Literary scholars contend that “The Glass Menagerie” is Williams’ autobiographical story, since its characters are loosely based on the author’s troubled upbringing. The story centers on a Southern family desperate to escape a poverty-stricken reality. The play is both beautiful and painful to watch, but illustrates perfectly Williams’ enormous gifts.

The Zwaanendael Museum will host “Women’s Clothing in the 18th Century,” an exhibit featuring a display of original 18th-century gowns and other articles of women’s clothing. Because March is Women’s History Month, the show includes a discussion about the functionality of women’s wear, design and construction techniques. For more, visit, or call 736-7400.

Elvira doesn’t mess around in “Blithe Spirit.” She haunts the Delaware Theatre Company March 2-20. She’s dead, of course, but that doesn’t stop her from tormenting her troglodytic husband, Charles. A ghost summoned by a psychic, Elvira is determined to destroy Charles’ new marriage—and maybe even Charles. Noël Coward’s play is a scream. For more, visit, or call 594-1100.
