"Despite its fits of humor and flashes of ingenuity and borrowings from 'Frankenstein,' it rarely feels alive...In stitching so many of these plays together, Mabou Mines uncovers the deep structures underlying them...Though the ideas underpinning 'Glass Guignol' are shrewd, the biographical context wrenching, the staging seemingly audacious, the play itself is often inert...This is shock treatment with a low current."

“The moments that this production chose to highlight from these various works revealed a story that I had not previously considered...A truly smart and performatively engaging work...If you are a fan of experimental theatre, Williams, amazing puppets, and/or plays that deal with mental health in a nuanced way, then this one is for you. And even if you aren’t very familiar with Williams’s work, I still firmly believe that this journey into the darkness of the looking glass is for you.” Full Review

See it if you love Tennessee Williams and you like direction that illuminates sometimes even astonishes and unforgettable acting
Don't see it if you have no interest in Williams or engaging something mysterious
