EVERYONE IS TALKING about Glass Protege!

During Previews the show was given  TWO    5 STAR   Reviews!

Hollywood, 1949 — a Golden Age of cinema, yes, but also a time when stifling restraints kept actors under oppressive control. An era when movies were king and their stars were pawns. The Glass Protege tells the story of Patrick Glass, a naive young actor who embarks on a scandalous gay love affair and is shocked to discover the true power the studio system has over his career and his life. This powerful drama exposes the underbelly of the Hollywood machine, picking up on the story 40 years later to shed light on previously murky truths as the consequences of Glass’ “unacceptable” romance are explored. Giant Cherry Productions invites you to step back into a time of glitz, glamour, passion and exploitation when The Glass Protege takes to the stage of Theater Wit.
