“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 essenceof her character in its many details with magnificent nuance.”
~  Dmitry Zvonkov for

“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

“Glezos is one of the most virtuosic actors I’ve ever seen, and her performance as Serafina allowed these talents to be on full display.”
~ Bess Rowen for
