The Glass Menagerie -
by Tenneesse Williams
Fulton Theater, Lancaster, PA
"Kevin Earley’s direction for this production manages to be complex and nuanced His direction is never flashy, but instead simply lets the excellent performances and exemplary text speak for itself. He does though add some comedic moments throughout from Leos’ performances, which add a bit more of a modern sensibility to this classic work. His comedic moments are not grand or farcical, but instead just strives to find moments of laughter in the everyday lives of these characters."The Snapper - Josh Rittburg
"This is the most entertaining “Glass Menagerie” I have ever seen. The laughter flows freely through much of the play. Director Kevin Earley has made the choice to lighten what is often a heavy play, and it is delightful to see how humorous Williams can be."Lancaster Online
