Streetcar Named Desire Opens

Blair Underwood

Tennessee Williams’ sultry drama, A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by Emily Mann opened at The Broadhurst Theater on April 22, 2012. A Streetcar Named Desire is set against a sexy backdrop of New Orleans’ gritty French Quarter and tells the tale of former school teacher and socialite Blanche DuBois, as she’s forced to move in with her sister Stella and her animalistic husband Stanley. But the fragile, Blanche quickly gets a gritty life lesson in the seamy, steamy underbelly of 1950’s New Orleans.
