Critics’ Reviews

"The freshest, most vital account of The Glass Menagerie I've seen—and I've seen my share. Director Edelstein and his excellent quartet of actors have blown the dust off this beloved 65-year-old classic. It's a cause for celebration."

Review by Erik Haagensen from Backstage

"Tennessee Williams' first great play The Glass Menagerie is done few favors by helmer Gordon Edelstein's on-the-nose interpretation, which stages the play in protag (and Williams stand-in) Tom Wingfield's hotel room and features Tom writing the script throughout the play."

Review by Variety from Sam Theilman

"All four actors have mastered the space between Williams' words, squeezing every ounce of sardonicism and naked vulnerability into a mesmerizing collaborative performance."

Review by Jeff Labrecque from Entertainment Weekly

"Fiercely moving and seriously funny. Lightning-lit from within by the tough, compelling and first-rate Amanda Wingfield of Judith Ivey, giving what is surely the performance of her career."

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times
