The Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, known for The Glass Menagarie, A Streetcar Named Desire, and more, was born March 26, 1911.

Famed playwright Tennessee Williams was born March 26, 1911. Williams made his Broadway debut in 1945 with The Glass Menagerie, igniting a four-decade career that included seminal works such as A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and more. The writer died February 25, 1983, but his work continues to flourish on the Great White Way.

Throughout his career, Williams won a Drama Desk Award, four New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, a Tony Award, and two Pulitzer Prizes.

Williams was recently on Broadway with a Trip Cullman-helmed production of The Rose Tattoo, starring Oscar winner Marisa Tomei.
