Saw The Glass Menagerie last night

So last night I went and saw the new production of The Glass Menagerie.  I am not sure I have ever seen it before.

I am familiar with the story since Shelly and I did a reading of it in Dual DI (Dual Dramatic Interpretation) for Speech Team.  In fact I would put up my reading of "I'll rise.  But I won't shine." against the best of them.
Of course, after seeing Cherry Jones flutter about the stage, I probably would take that back..  Zachary Quinto was great, but that boy cannot get rid of a 5:00 o'clock shadow for the life of him.  Laura was played by Celia Keenan-Bolger who was so excellent in Peter and the Starcatcher.
Any how it was a ton of fun and I liked it.

You were a fabulous Tom. I remember I was going through my all Tennessee Williams all the time phase. I really wanted to do Suddenly Last Summer but I thought the whole cannibalism thing might throw the judges off. I was a strange young thing but my southern accent was stellar:) svh

How easily you forget. We did do Suddenly Last Summer at one event. But they judges said, correctly as it turns out, all I did was say, "What happened next?"

And you did an excellent "Sebastian!" break down.
