BWW Review: GLORY DENIED at Urban Arias

Jim Thompson, an Army Ranger and POW of the Viet Namese for 9 years, deserves to have his story widely known.

Glory Denied, a 90 minute opera based on Philpott's book, definitely contributes to raising Thompson's profile. Urban Arias has mounted a strong production of the 2007 one-act work in English through January 19 in the Keegan Theatre's space on Church Street.
