The lot next to the theater is great IF you get there early. The attendants gave us a voucher to park at a nearby hotel for free, but the delay cut into our dinner time. We managed to grab a great casual dinner quick and cheap at a local Mexican joint with great street tacos and make it to the play in time. Show runs long so use the rest room before it starts!

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.

Fantastic production of a classic American drama, this play is as powerful as Angels in America, Long Day's Journey, and The Laramie Project. And it's not done that often. It has special relevance for today, as the unemployment and family...continued

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.
