Jessica Holt, DIRECTOR
The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
Presented by Boxcar Theater, San Francisco, CA
"An innovative, very successful new interpretation...The ingenuity of this production lies in the wordless interactions between the shadows and the distraught Wingfields...The marvelously complex staging of this show holds interest intensely...Having the shadows react to their real selves heightens the emotions of anger and disillusionment, while extending Williams' metaphors of uncertainty and melancholy...Boxcar has added more depth in a modernist or cubist style, showing facets of the characters from skewed angles, thereby expanding our understanding of who these people are."
- Albert Goodwyn, San Francisco Bay Times
"Some powerful performances by local actors are on display during Boxcar's "Tenn Will" festival. Most notable are Suzan A. Kendall's characterization of Amanda Wingfield ...Matching her in a remarkable contrast is Hannah Knapp as Amanda's shy daughter, Laura.
