Tomorrow I am seeing Glass Menagerie, and obviously I'm very excited! But since it is Halloween, I was wondering if people will be dressing up? I know that some shows like Natasha, Pierre, Comet... are encouraging people to dress up. The costumes make sense for their show since it is more avant-garde, but since Glass Menagerie is of a more serious nature, I wasn't sure what people would be doing.

I'll be limping and looking sad.

Really? You are going to the theater, not a halloween party.

I think shows would advertise such things, like Natasha and Pierre did. I wouldn't dress up for Glass Menagerie, but considering I have seen people wear sweatpants to the theater....maybe it would be a step up?

Several years ago I saw Kevin Kline's CYRANO on Halloween night and sat behind a whole family that was dressed as Crayola crayons.

I would never dress in costume unless I was encouraged to. Maybe wear some Halloween jewelry, but still. It's the theatre, not a costume party or Mardi Gras.

Go as Laurette Taylor and spook Cherry if you have a seat close to the stage.

Even Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet's Halloween event is still in the realm of the show- Russian opera or military attire.

Otherwise, why the heck would you wear a costume?

Dress as a big Cherry and sit in the front row.

I would suggest going as a glass unicorn. But people would see right through you.

Sorry about that. Great minds work alike.
