Say what one will about the state of the theater, set design has come a long way...

Do you have any of the classic 'Glass Menagerie' mid-60's Broadway production? George Grizzard, Pat Hingle, Piper Laurie, and Maureen Stapleton, I believe. I was there with my high school acting group for a school group-filled matinee and, at one point, Grizzard came to the apron and addressed the audience because some kids in the balcony were misbehaving. "This is not a movie you're attending, it is live theater," he said, or close to it. Loud ovation and quiet the rest of the way.
