Why See A Streetcar Named Desire?
Streetcar tells the tragic story of fragile former schoolteacher Blanche, who leaves the family plantation house and moves to New Orleans to live with her sister, Stella, and Stella's animalistic husband, Stanley. She quickly gets a gritty life lesson in the seamy, steamy underbelly of 1940s life in the French Quarter.
A Streetcar Named Desire is being produced on Broadway by Stephen Byrd and Alia Jones of Front Row Productions, which presented the hit 2008 Broadway revival of Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof featuring an African-American cast led by James Earl Jones, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose and Terrence Howard.
The Streetcar cast features two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Underwood as Stanley Kowalski, with Parker as Blanche DuBois and two-time Tony nominee Rubin-Vega as Stella Kowalski. Wood Harris is cast as Blanche's suitor Mitch.
A Streetcar Named Desire will have a score by Grammy Award-winning jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard.
