Stanley Kowalski’s famous cry of “STELLA!” booms across the stage, electrifying the audience at Tennessee Williams’ play A Streetcar Named Desire. Premiering in 1947, Streetcar was Williams’ sophomore drama on Broadway and the one that solidified his place as a great American playwright. The tormented Blanche DuBois, a lapsed Southern belle who clings to illusion as her only defense, makes her last desperate stand in the French Quarter home of her sister Stella and fiery brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Against a sultry New Orleans backdrop of smoky jazz haunts, all-night poker sessions, and steamy summer nights, Blanche and Stanley engage in an unforgettable personal battle for survival, where seduction and violence are the explosive weapons of choice. This powerful and mesmerizing American drama is not to be missed!
