Review: The Glass Menagerie, a play I think I appreciate more than I liked it. This is another play I would really like to see a production of some day, as I think it could really work for me on stage. In written form, it never really engaged me. There were individual scenes and sentences I really liked, but as a story I just didn’t engage.
