BWW Review: Lovely Dreamlike Production of THE GLASS MENAGERIE at City Theatre
by Frank Benge - Jul 25, 2016

THE GLASS MENAGERIE was Tennessee Williams first successful play. It premiered in Chicago in 1944 and later transferred to Broadway. This four character memory play took Williams from obscurity to fame, winning the New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1945. The most strongly autobiographical of his work it features characters based on his overbearing mother and his fragile sister Rose. Before the play Williams had covered the material in both a short story called 'Portrait of a Girl in Glass' and a screenplay written earlier called The Gentleman Caller. The play is the most lyrically beautiful of all of Williams work, due mostly to the poetry of Tom's soliloquies to the audience. It examines the isolation of people who can't connect to each other or the world at large. (more...)
