One of my favorites
12 May 2003 | by (Long Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of the plays of Tennessee Williams and I have read most if not all of them. This was one of my favorites when I read it and I like it even better now that I've been able to watch a production of it.

All the acting is good, especially Blythe Danner.

In comparison to his other plays, this one seems most closely related to The Glass Menagerie in that is has all of the profound dialog creeping from ordinary conversation and it is sad and sentimental without resorting to being sordid in the way of Suddenly Last Summer or some of his later plays.

I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys the most popular plays of Tennessee Williams!
