Over the years I've seen a number of productions of THE GLASS MENAGERIE by Tennessee Williams, and they've varied in degrees of appeal greatly. There's even another production from another local company scheduled later this month. There's a reason; it's a classic. This play, based on the author's short story "Portrait of a Girl in Glass", can be a unique, involving experience in the hands of the right actors and director. Thankfully, Dramatic License Productions has put together a terrifically engaging presentation that's really true to its source, lyrical and magical, with the additions of a series of projections that set the mood by hinting at each scene's essence. It's a clever device, and with four very solid performances, this makes for a great combination that's very worth of your attention and time.

Summer's here, and it's hotter than blue blazes in Tennessee, as theater companies from one end of the state to the other are hard at work to keep audiences engaged and entertained throughout what promises to be one long hot summer. But think of it this way, with yesterday's Summer Solstice-which means we've survived the year's longest day-everything will get just a little bit shorter, promising a respite from the heat and humidity. This week also marked the celebration of National Martini Day, so may we humbly suggest that you grab a shaker, add some ice, vodka and a whisper of vermouth and shake yourself up an ice-cold drink…
