The Days are Shorter

"You brought so much to the role of Pax - the scene about the card - you were brilliant. Thank you." -Corinne J Kawecki (playwright), personal e-mail

The Days are Shorter
Pax (Gay Glenn), is a role that mostly calls for her to be exasperated by Julia’s new romantic affair, but Glenn is careful to let us see the broken love in the background. –Karen Topham,, Chicago, IL

Cinderella at the Theater of Potatoes
"The cast is rounded out by Gay Glenn’s Georges [sic] Sand, a good-natured rabble-rouser, gamely strumming the banjo as she shouts for equality, fraternity and power to the people." - Catey Sullivan, 
Chicago Theatre Beat 
The Realm
"The actors bend perfectly at those points where genuinity is overshadowed by story, particularly the doctor (Gay Glenn) who twists and turns her brilliantly charismatic antagonist to suit the truth of the setting and the truth of the message simultaneously." -Wesley James, 
The Hawk Chicago

“As … visual artist Marsee Gone, actress Gaye Glenn turns in one of the evening’s most effective, organic performances, proving that the most intelligent satire has a solid base in realistic characterization.” –Carolyn Petrie,
CityPages, Minneapolis, MN
“Glenn follows with a booming, masterful solo of “Nothin’ to Nobody.” –Dick Moore,
Rapid City Journal, Rapid City, SD
Lady Day at Emerson Bar and Grill
