Orpheus Descending, Irene Glezos

May 2016
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, pictured here with director Austin Pendleton.

Fellow Greek Olympia Dukakis played Lady in another production of Orpheus Descending that Austin directed 40 years ago in Williamstown. How lovely to see her in the front row closing night.

Recent reviews:                                                


“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.”
–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
