Theatre Review: ‘The Glass Menagerie’ at Theatre Morgan

Max Garner

September 30, 2019

As World War II waned in both theaters, up-and-coming playwright Tennessee Williams premiered what would become his first major work, in Chicago. A self-described “memory play” set in late Depression-era St. Louis, “The Glass Menagerie” launched Williams’ career, which would eventually establish him as one of the 20th century’s most important American authors.

Several fine stagings of “Menagerie” have appeared in Baltimore through the years – perhaps most notably the 1994 production of AXIS Theatre’s first season, directed by Brian Klaas. 25 years later, it’s time to add another highlight to the list:   the current
production by Theatre Morgan, running for only two weekends, is as powerful a telling of this story as we’ve ever seen.

Go see Theatre Morgan’s ‘The Glass Menagerie’ while you can.
