Reviews:
“I will remember this very fine production for a long time to come.”
~Matt Palm~Orlando Sentinel
“This isn’t the gateway drug to theater for the non-theater goer. It’s a fine, complex wine for the connoisseur.”

“For lovers of theater, it is an incredibly well executed play where the production aspects, the actors and the director work together seamlessly to execute a vision.”

~Stephen Scarborough~ Winter Garden Magazine

“What mattered most was how the last act bowled me over”
~Thomas Thorspecken~ Analog Artist Digital World

“meticulously designed aspects of the show, including the set by Jamie DeHay and sound by Kenny Howard.”

“The reason this particular production fully succeeds is that the actors do not shy away from the funny and do not overplay the drama.”

~Michael Wanzie~WanziePresents.com

“Beth Marshall Presents is one of the most important and inventive theatre companies in town. Even if you do not appreciate every aspect Marshall’s shows, her willingness to experiment with content and push the boundaries of design is a vital part of the Central Florida theatre community.”
~Matt Tamanini~BroadWayWorld.Com

Anthony Pyatt Jr. (Tom) is delighted to be working once more with The Garden Theatre! After previously working with Beth Marshall in every other capacity, it has been a long anticipated desire to have her as a director and couldn’t think of a better production than one of Tennessee Williams’s greatest works. He is humbled to be following in the footsteps of some of his favorite inspirations who have also explored the mind of Tom Wingfield: John Malkovich, Sam Waterston, Rip Torn, Christian Slater, & Zachary Quinto. With the ambition of living the same stage-to-screen fate, he recently signed with Level Talent Group to broaden his horizons. Anthony had starred as the nefarious Alex DeLarge in an immersive production of Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange, directly after moving back from a 3 year exploration of life, filming & theatre training in NYC. He was most recently seen at the Garden Theatre, ministering as the young Mormon missionary “Elder Thomas” in The Whale. During the rehearsal process of The Glass Menagerie, Anthony directed a short play written by Irene L. Pynn for Play-In-A-Day 2016; the funds of which all went toward the District 3 Thespian Scholarship and OnePulseFoundation.org. He continues his work on different writing outlets, including spoken word and his second unconventional musical. This performance is dedicated to Leroy Valentin and Tommy Mangieri; two men who have taught me a similar lesson in their absence. “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” – Albus Dumbledore
