the glass menagerie

“This “Menagerie” is one that is creatively and profoundly directed. Lluberes mindfully creates each moment, guiding each actor’s choices so that they feed into a singular vision that once again proves why this show is a classic one, one that speaks to the human condition on both a micro and macro level.

 

Led by Lluberes, this show’s artists and technicians tell a story that is touching and heartbreaking, and far more relevant and timely than even Tennessee Williams could expect so many decades after he first penned this unconventional memory play.”

- Encore Michigan

 

“An exceptionally impressive production of an American masterpiece. The Rep is to be congratulated for bringing this amazing level of creative expertise to our own backyard. It should not be missed.”

- Flint Stages

 

“Visually stimulating, dreamlike. Director Michael Lluberes sensitively recreates the much-performed drama, adding original touches that honor Williams’ telling of troubled times in an emotionally struggling family.”

THE GLASS MENAGERIE

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Michael Lluberes

 

Flint Repertory Theatre

 

A play of exquisite beauty. Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie is one of the greatest American classics of the 20th Century. Reality and illusion collide in this emotional family drama.

 

"Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion."

-Tennessee Williams
