THEATER: The Glass Menagerie 

Saturday, March 26

Just one teeny tiny decision or dinner gone wrong can affect a whole family. That's what we learn from playwright Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie anyway. In the drama, a fella named Tom brings a friend (and presumably suitable partner for his sister) over to his house to chow down on some grub with the pack. His obsessive mother strives for perfection by doing everything in her power to please the guest — all with unrealistic hopes that he'll fall for her handicapped and much isolated daughter. It's no real spoiler to say that nothing goes according to plan here. And the breaking of a glass animal figurine is just the tipping point. $8-$24. March 26, 8 p.m.; March 27, 2:30 p.m.; March 31, 7:30 p.m.; April 1-2, 8 p.m.; April 3, 2:30 p.m. Theatre Charlotte, 501 Queens Road. 704-376-3777. www.theatrecharlotte.org.
