Perez Reviews: The Glass Menagerie - On Broadway!

menagerie

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!!!

Zachary Quinto Is Set To Hit Broadway This Fall!

zachary quinto will be hitting broadway this fall in a production of tennessee williams the glass menagerie

It looks like Zachary Quinto will be trading in his Spock ears for the bright lights of Broadway in just a few months!

The Star Trek actor will be returning to the stage along with Cherry Jones, Celia Keenan-Bolger, and Brian J. Smith in the play The Glass Menagerie!

How exciting!!

The American Repertory Theater production of the Tennessee Williams play was directed by Tony-Award winning director John Tiffany and showed at some smaller venues earlier this year. But now they're ready for the big leagues and will be hitting Broadway!

The first shows will start previewing September 5th at the Shubert Theatre, and it will officially open on September 26th!

The Glass Menagerie will only be on Broadway for 17 weeks, so make sure to get your ticket before it's gone!
