Sally Field calls her 'The Glass Menagerie' matriarch "the female Hamlet"

UPI News Service, 05/05/2017 

Sally Field describes Amanda Wingfield, the character she plays in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie," as "the female Hamlet."

"Amanda Wingfield is one of the great and few, really powerful, classic, American, female roles in literature," the 70-year-old actress said at a New York press event for Tony nominees Wednesday.

"She is sort of the female Hamlet, in a way. Certainly, in that she never stops talking. She is complicated and it is such great literature that it constantly invites interpretation and, certainly, [director] Sam Gold has taken that challenge and has looked at it in a different way. For me ... a 'thrill' becomes almost too lightweight a word. This kind of role, doing this, this way at the Belasco, it really calls upon the 54 years in my life I've worked to be able to do it."

Co-starring Madison Ferris, Joe Mantello and Finn Wittrock, the play follows a financially struggling, former debutante, who is desperate to find a suitor for her painfully shy daughter, while her son works to support them.
