Can't wait to read these. I expect a reprise of the raves it got at A.R.T.

Very excited to read these as well! Break a leg to everyone involved in this truly beautiful production.

Can't believe the AP's Mark Kennedy gives away the magic of Laura's entrance in the opening graph of his review.

Expecting 5 thumbs up on DidHeLikeIt! What a stunning revival. Can't wait to go back and see it again.

May all their reviews be as loving! The AP review really echoed so many of my own thoughts when seeing the show here in Boston.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

When we first see the Wingfield family together in the splendid production of “The Glass Menagerie” that has now opened on Broadway, Zachary Quinto is sitting at the dinner table holding his hands behind his back, as if in a straitjacket; all that’s missing is the gag — a precise physical representation of how his character Tom feels in the stifling, impoverished household of his family in St. Louis in the 1930?s. Celia Keenan-Bolger sits with her back terribly straight, her hands primly in her lap, as if under the watchful eye of an ever-reprimanding schoolmaster, which is surely how her character Laura feels. And Cherry Jones gestures as if she is conducting an orchestra, the broad sweep of her arms showing a strong woman in command of her family. Only later does the thought occur: Her Amanda is using her hands this way to maintain her balance, to keep from falling down.

The reviews are glowing. I hate the dick who spoiled Laura's entrance. Douche.

Judging by my exchange with him about it on Twitter, he doesn't care. Sad.

Brantley still loves it:

" ... promises to be the most revealing revival of a cornerstone classic for many a year to come."

Wait, Nico Muhly wrote music for this? How did I miss that? That just makes me want to see this even more.

He adds so much to the production, very haunting. Also looking forward to his opera, Two Boys, at The MetOpera this season.

Extension is very likely, and the $42 seats are great!

I would say if tickets aren't already hard to come by, they will be very shortly. Get them NOW, I think this production will be talked about for a very long time.

Wow, what a review by Brantley! Sometimes I feel his feelings are such a mystery you practically need a code book. Not this time!

Can't wait to see this.
