About "A Street Car Named Desire"
This season, desire is taking on a whole new rhythm as the greatest play from America's most celebrated playwright sizzles onto the stage at The Broadhurst Theatre. From the producers of the trailblazing 2008 Broadway production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, starring James Earl Jones and Terrence Howard, comes a hot new take on Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Streetcar is directed by Emily Mann (Artistic Director of Princeton's Tony Award winning McCarter Theatre) and featuring an original score by 5-time Grammy Award winner Terence Blanchard, this scintillating Streetcar brings a whole new rhythm to Williams's enduring portrait of sex, class and secrets in one of America's most fascinating and diverse cities. Come and feel the heat.
A Streetcar Named Desire has recently been extended through August 19 at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre (Source: http://streetcaronbroadway.com/).
