The new revival of The Glass Menagerie on Broadway is worth seeing, purely for the performance of Cherry Jones.
Best known to TV audiences from her work on 24, the actress really shines on stage and commands the audience's attention at the Booth Theater - whenever she speaks or is just standing there. In fact, her presence is so powerful that it lingers when she's off stage too!
It is truly a Tony-worthy performance!
Menagerie is not one of our favorite plays from Tennessee Williams. It relies far too much on narration and not that much action happens in Act 1.
John Tiffany does a fine job directing, but Bob Crowley's scenic design - or lack thereof - left much to be desired.
As far as the other performers, Celia Keenan-Bolger was solid. Brian J. Smith was barely in the show. And, Zachary Quinto, while good, unfortunately attempted a very specific Southern accent that he just couldn't pull off and that had mostly disappeared by the end of Act 2.
Jones, however, is a Tennessee native and radiates not just authenticity but also brilliance in this production. See it for her! She is giving us some Meryl!!!
Swifty is no stranger to on-camera roles, seeing as she had a part in Valentine's Day three years ago and made an appearance in New Girl earlier this year, and we're starting to think Tay-Tay has been bit by the acting bug!
The singer landed a supporting role in the upcoming film The Giver with Hollywood's best actors, Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes, and Alexander Skarsgård, and she is still in shock that it even happened!
Tay dished on her on-set experience:
Oh, Lorde! She's at it again!
Lorde's only been on the scene for a little while, but she hasn't been shy about blasting a massive helping of the music industry's A-list.
The chart topper said:
She kissed a girl and whether or not she liked it is no big deal!
