Nominated Best Actress by the Big Easy Entertainment Awards for her portrayal of Lady in Tennessee Williams’ Orpheus Descending at Southern Rep in New Orleans directed by Jef Hall-Flavin.
Now in pre-production for web series called Park Slope Moms! — Coming Soon!
Just wrapped shooting on a SAG indie film called Crater co-written and co-directed by Jack Dilday and Johan Aidt. With Jack Dilday and David Newer. Had the best time shooting in the Catskills! Can’t wait to see the rough cut. A phenomenal filmmaking team!
I reprised the role of Lady in Tennessee Williams’ Orpheus Descending in New York City at the Theatre at St. Johns Lutheran Church, 81 Christopher Street.
“Leading the production as Lady Torrance, the Sicilian immigrant wife of the owner of a dry goods store, Glezos captivates the audience. She deftly conveys every layer of sorrow and anguish that envelops Lady, crafting a character whose pain is as rich as Williams’ elevated, dramatic language.”
–David Clarke for Out.com
“Irene Glezos delivers a lovely, stirring performance as Lady in Austin Pendleton’s staging of Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece Orpheus Descending. A force of nature, Lady says and does things almost in spite of herself. A prisoner of her childlike sincerity, she is at once witty, ironic, funny, melodramatic, all almost without intending to be, as though an inner engine which she can’t really control is driving her. Ms. Glezos captures this essence of her character in its many details with magnificent nuance.”
