“If theater was easy, the goyim would do it!” bellows regional theater grande dame Irene (Patti LuPone) in Douglas Carter Beane’s Shows for Days, the author’s muddled, tonally wonky ode to growing up during a Pennsylvania stage troupe’s salad days in the early ‘70s. This memory play, playing at Lincoln Center’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre through Aug. 23, aims to be Beane’s own Glass Menagerie via Borscht Belt, but what results here—as Glass storyteller Tom Wingfield might say—attempts to rise but does not shine.
