From Holly and Andy: “As a mother/son duo, working on a selection from The Glass Menagerie offered a thrilling duality. On one hand, we were able to use our real life relationship as a platform for the roles. On the other, we were able to separate our own personality from the characters and dive into their complexities. Marrying the two gave me a rich understanding of the characters.”
