"Suzanne Bouchard plays the disappointed Southern matriarch in Tennessee Williams's most autobiographical play. As an actor, Bouchard has an icy inaccessibility that sometimes works against her, since audiences normally want a voyeuristic look into the center of a character. But that quality serves her as Amanda Wingfield, a woman who prefers to turn inward, living in her mysterious, downy memories instead of facing the cold problems of the present. When snapped out of her reveries, she hisses like a viper before falling back to her nostalgia, as surely as her daughter falls back to her figurines and her son falls back to his booze and his 'movies.'"
