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.

Gretchen Hoffman Zholi and George Minasian started out 10 years ago providing party favors and gift baskets for everything from engagement parties to 50th wedding anniversaries. They started adding other aspects of event consulting, but over the years their clients began focusing not just on the service, but on the favors themselves and the high-end bowls and platters in which the chocolates, nuts and flowers were delivered.

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.

Handling the play with the greatest respect for the unique subtleties of the great playwright Tennessee Williams, A Noise Within presents a haunting production of “The Eccentricities of a Nightingale.” Focused acting and sensitive direction are complemented by artistic scenery, lighting and sound. Similar to Williams’ classics “The Glass Menagerie” and “Streetcar Named Desire,” the lesser-known “Eccentricities of a Nightingale” is the story of an emotionally raw young woman caught in a world that doesn’t understand her. It is a study of unfulfilled dreams and unrequited love, but also personal empowerment.
