A Streetcar Named Desire
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In 1947, Broadway's hottest young writer brought a new play to the Walnut prior to Broadway. It was an exotic, erotic, passionate and dramatic story, with performances so raw they changed the American approach to acting for generations to come. Tennessee Williams' masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire, went on to become a major sensation on Broadway and in Hollywood. Set in the steamy French Quarter of New Orleans, we follow the nervous adventures of a faded Southern belle, Blanche DuBois. This journey of delicate indiscretions, lost dreams and brutish actions leads Blanche to madness, aided by her handsome, masculine brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. One of the greatest dramas of the 20th century returns to where it began as part of the Walnut's 200th Anniversary celebration.
