STAR TREK actor ZACHARY QUINTO has won a round of glowing reviews for his Broadway debut in a revival of TENNESSEE WILLIAMS' classic play THE GLASS MENAGERIE.
Quinto appears opposite Broadway veteran Cherry Jones in the production, which opened in New York this week (ends29Sep13), and he has won acclaim for his role as Jones' onstage son, Tom.
David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter calls Quinto's Broadway debut a "knockout", writing, "A performance of towering complexity from Cherry Jones... (makes) this essential theater. No less impressive is Zachary Quinto's knockout Broadway debut as Williams' most nakedly autobiographical character, Tom."
The New York Daily News' theater critic Joe Dziemianowicz gives the play five stars out of five, branding it a "must-see" and singles out Quinto for particular praise, adding, "No ifs, ands or buts - The Glass Menagerie should break your heart. The new Broadway revival starring Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto cracks it wide open."
Elisabeth Vincentelli of the New York Post also praised Quinto and even compared the production to hugely popular TV show Breaking Bad, writing, "This revival of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie arrives on Broadway... with the excitement usually reserved for Breaking Bad... It's genius! You need it!"
Tony Award winner Jones is best known for her role as President Allison Taylor in hit TV series 24. Quinto also got a big break with a part in the third season of Kiefer Sutherland's drama show.
