In Glendale Community College?s presentation of ?The Durang Menagerie,? the zaftig Amy Ackerman opens the evening as the eponymously titled ?Mrs. Sorken.? ?Dear theatergoers, welcome, and how lovely to see you,? she trills. And with that, we?re off on a celebration and lampoon of theater, from the Greek classics to the works of American icons like Eugene O?Neill. ?The Durang Menagerie? is a collection of one-acts by America?s master absurdist, Christopher Durang, in which he parodies theater and its adherents in all their self-import and overblown metaphor, in a loopy, hilarious riff on actors and audience.

Glass MenagerieA top-notch cast and crew bring only their best to the Colony Theatre Company's production of "The Glass Menagerie," breathing fresh life into Tennessee Williams' well-worn classic. Despite an overall tone too delicate and reverential considering the tough truths revealed in the material, the skill of those involved make it worth seeing. And one gentleman almost walks off with the whole play. Director Jessica Kubzansky's steady work is supported on every level, from a beautiful set designed by Michelle Ney and lighting by Jeremy Pivnick, to powerful original music composed by Randall Tico.

The summer heat permeates a New York hotel room, circa 1972. A slim and sexy blond, clad only in a lacy white slip, lifts a languid hand to fan herself as she needles and nags the room's other occupant: playwright Tennessee Williams. In Joe Besecker's poignant and steamy drama, “Tennessee in Summer,” at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre in Burbank, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Streetcar Named Desire” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” answers the young woman's gibes in kind as he sits at his typewriter, struggling to finish a new play.
