En Avant! An Evening with Tennessee Williams
Winner of 2013 New York International Fringe Festival "Overall Excellence Award for Solo Performance", 'En Avant! An Evening with Tennessee Williams' is a highly personal one-man play that explores the family dynamic, the seminal work, the most important lovers and the demons that shaped the development of the man considered by many to be America's greatest playwright.
Written and performed by William Shuman, En Avant!... provides a unique view into the heart and mind of this admittedly "wounded man".
Tennessee Williams was American Theatre for much of the 20th century. And though many of his master works continue to be produced, the legacy of the man himself is slowly being lost.
A profound understanding of the human condition lives in the dialogue of his characters and in the verses of his poetry and it is through examining the life that produced this dialogue and these verses that we can fully appreciate the great gift that was Tennessee Williams.
'En Avant! An Evening with Tennessee Williams' is Mr. Shuman's attempt to insure that this brilliant but admittedly "wounded" man is remembered by all those who treasure the lyric beauty of his writing.
