THE PLAY: This is a satirical mashup of 3 Tennessee Williams classics: “Glass,” “Cat” and “Streetcar.” (If you can’t guess the plays from those abbreviations you might miss the jokes.)

 

THE PRODUCTION: This cast is having fun playing with their classic characters’ stereotypes. Some of that translates into genuine laffs, while at other times it seems a bit sophomoric. Jeff Clevenger has directed the show with an ear for the gags, but less emphasis on the archetypal Southern accents. Just when the show needs to build THE comic momentum, Act Two slacks in pace. Running time: 1:45

 

THE POINT: Moments of genuine humor (and some that are silly) created by an uneven, but lively cast.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)

 

At Firehouse Theatre thru 5/28
