Director Glenn Meche holds up a mirror to life's truths in his staging of Williams' 'Glass Menagerie
The grace and poetry of Tennessee Williams' language can be a trap, similar to Shakespeare, so languorously enveloping the audience in the playwright's words that it misses out on the drama being presented on stage.
Director Glenn Meche's production of "The Glass Menagerie," now at the Marigny Theatre, embraces the audience with the warmth of those words while also giving it a brisk slap in which the drama resonates, vitally coming to life.

REVIEW: THE GLASS MENAGERIE
As great a play as THE GLASS MENAGERIE is ... it is not an easy or sure-footed play. It requires a cast and a director who can deal with the fragile qualities of Mr.Williams’ hurtful script. Happily, the Marigny Theatre has the gifted director Glenn Meche and a cast of talented actors exactly right for each realistic role.

"The Glass Menagerie" Theater Review
"I am the opposite of a stage magician," Tom Wingfield says in the opening monologue of The Glass Menagerie, Tennessee Williams' first big hit, which recently received a stunning production at Marigny Theatre. "He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant guise of illusion." ...
Glenn Meche directed the production with a sure hand. Here's hoping he brings it back with the same cast, so more theatergoers can fall under its spell.
