Featured Reviews For Three Tall Women

Glenda Jackson Is Speaking. Tony Awards Voters Should Listen: Review of ‘Three Tall Women’ - Daily Beast
Three Tall Women, directed with a sublimely paced grace by Joe Mantello, is very funny and very sad. It charts the progress of a life, and a discussion of the self as it ages, from the vantage point of knowing everything, down through the middle age of knowing quite a bit, and then the young person not knowing much at all.

Glenda Jackson steals the show in a thrilling, emotionally affecting 'Three Tall Women' on Broadway - LA Times
The play is set up as a diptych, but it's really an anatomy of a single life. This Broadway production, gracefully directed by Joe Mantello, performs the work without an intermission, underscoring the seamlessness of Albee's vision.

It's been nearly three decades since the superb stage artist Glenda Jackson took her last opening night bow on Broadway, playing Lady Macbeth in 1988. Since then she's been working in the somewhat less scripted field of British politics, serving in Parliament for over twenty years.
