See it if Solid production of lesser Williams play Enough pathos & poetry to counter the purple prose Good performances with Harter's Boss Finley A+
Don't see it if Slow & somewhat over written but essential for any Williams fan Rich's Alexandra a little strident but director Marchese keeps her on course
See it if you want to see a Tenn. Williams work performed by some up and coming young (mostly) talent. The Gallery has come "thru" with a winner
Don't see it if you have given up on 3 hour productions. and Brooklyn is too far. Sets are great too (NO BAD SEATS) ..
"The Gallery Players' rendition of 'Sweet Bird of Youth' is all the beautiful raw tragedy at the heart of Tennessee Williams' works, which is perhaps the greatest gift an audience can get. Under the flawless direction of Jesse Marchese, these actors deliver...All of the actors are excellent vocally under dialect coach Joe Hetterly. They smoothly deliver different Southern accents while never becoming a joke...The fight choreography is also seamless without looking staged."
“‘Sweet Bird Of Youth’ was the last critically acclaimed play by Tennessee Williams before drugs and alcohol destroyed his productivity. It is an entertaining spectacle showcasing his skill delivering a masterclass in dialogue and story development. The actors perform their parts with emotion and passion. This production is funny, moving, and at times, unpredictable. It keeps the full attention of the audience through three acts. A standing ovation for a job well done!”
