Stevenson University’s production of The Glass Menagerie ended a successful run this weekend. The actors effectively walked the line between revealing the characters’ flaws and creating sympathy for them, and the acting, directing, and design were seamlessly integrated to evoke a sense of nostalgia and memory for the audience. As the story unfolded, the audience was transported to St. Louis in 1939 and experienced the despair and longing of characters who are dissatisfied with their own lives but ill-equipped for anything else.

The show was directed by Ryan Clark (Program Director, Theatre & Media Performance) and starred Chris Roberts (Theatre & Media Performance faculty), Adam Vaughn (senior, FMI major), Jack Rizzo (sophomore, Digital Marketing major), and Victoria Taylour Caldwell (freshman, Theatre & Media Performance major) with design by Chris Crostic (Theatre & Media Performance faculty) and Lori Rubeling (VCD faculty, School of Design).
