The Glass Menagerie Customer Reviews

4.4 / 5 (53 customer reviews)


1 March

A first-class production in every way. Sensitively acted by a strong cast and with an atmospheric setting and excellent sound and lighting. I think Tennessee Williams would have approved. My companion and I were impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the production.


1 March

The acting with voice accents from mother Wingfield, son Tom, daughter Laura and visitor Jim O'Connor was superb. The introduction by the brother set the scene succinctly as an essential to what ensued. The allegory depicted by the daughter Laura emerging from 'nowhere' and disappearing to 'nowhere' was nothing short of magical, summed up the nature of her natural shyness as a key element of her tortured thoughts related to her self perceived inadequacy. The mother excelled in the forceful self ambition in her own mind with her denial of anything short of what she saw through her mental 'rose tinted glasses' as real and expected for herself through her daughter. Jim's portrayal of personal character with honour, above Tom's conspiracy to deceive his mother, was well delivered. As for individual praise, Laura's voice was the epitome of a self conscious introvert under motherly protection from the harsher world. With best wishes for continued deserved success. AMD.
