WOW. Enjoyed The Glass Menagerie at the Dixon Art Gallery and Gardens. Outstanding: the sets, saxaphonist, performances of actors, transition from the entrance through the paths past the pavilion to the seating. Tennessee Williams himself (having read his Memoirs this week) commented like a Greek chorus on the play. Hutchison English teacher played superbly as the mother. Each effective. A great evening.
