Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's deal: for $19, you get two tickets to the University Theatre's production of The Glass Menagerie, running May 6–May 14 at the John Wright Theatre, located on campus (up to a $39.20 value, service charge included). Children younger than 5 are not admitted into the theater.
University Theatre attracts talented young actors and actresses, putting on innovative productions under the direction and with the assistance of a world-class faculty. Often considered one of the greatest works of literary legend Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie follows the memory of aspiring poet Tom Whitfield as he recounts his young life in 1930s St. Louis. Throughout the performance, the talented cast tells a tale of the strained and storied relationship between an overbearing mother, a tragic and naive young sister, and the all-too-human narrator. Witness the skill of these able artsmiths as they prepare a masterful interpretation of a classic using only the finest and freshest of nonsynthetic emotions.
