A wonderful evening last night with friends at Jlonka and Marcel’s – small plates & wine – followed by Tennessee William’s The Glass Menagerie produced by Bowen’s own Kingbaby Productions. Check out the write up in the Undercurrent.
What made this production special was a real-life mother/son team Jackie Minns and her son Andrew Cameron playing the roles of Amanda and Tom Wingfield respectively.
Last time I saw The Glass Menagerie was when I had just emigrated to Canada in April 1997. I landed in Toronto before starting my cross-country train ride and on my second night in Canada, managed to get a ticket to see Kiefer Sutherland along with his mother Shirley Douglas play the mother/son Wingfields. It was pretty awesome for me to see Kiefer Sutherland live, having only ever seen him in movies prior to this. If memory serves me right, he and his mother did a fine job at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto.
