We enjoyed dinner in the patio of the Cosmopolitan Hotel having parked in Cygnet's designated parking lot first and then did the 1 1/2 block walk.

This theater will only seat you in the last 2 rows no matter what the seating availability or when you purchased your tickets. Goldstar does not state this in the description of the seating, only describing the section and providing a seating chart. Very misleading.

Description

The Glass Menagerie is Tennessee Williams’ most deeply personal and haunting play. Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle, holds on tight to her two children. She pushes them to be more successful—in life and love. When her son Tom brings home a gentleman caller, his sister Laura is given hope. Their chance meeting becomes one of the sweetest and most heartbreaking stories ever told. Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece is a touching tale of lost dreams, family bonds and survival.
