The Glass Menagerie


Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie has never been successfully translated to the big screen, and that makes this poignant story of lost hopes and horizons particularly compelling on stage. The play centers on three members of a family — a former Southern belle, a lonely daughter and a factory worker — who live in a cheap apartment; a visitor reminds them of what could have been. All four characters, in various ways, cling to illusions to mitigate their depressing reality. Friday-Saturday, 8 p.m., Sunday, 2 p.m.; Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Ave., Suite 16-B,, $20.
