The Nikos Stage season begins June 22nd, 2011 with a revival of Tennessee Williams' incendiary drama, directed by David Cromer (Our Town). The cast will feature Jessica Hecht (A View From the Bridge, Our Town at WTF) as Blanche DuBois and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Hot L Baltimore at WTF) as Stanley Kowalski. With 28 productions of his plays in the WTF history, Tennessee Williams and the Williamstown Theatre Festival have had a long and impressive relationship. To honor his 100th birthday, there's no better gift than an intimate new production of his masterwork by one of today's most inventive directors. In the close quarters of the Nikos Stage, the audience will take up temporary residence in the stifling Kowalski apartment to witness Williams' turbulent tale of longing and delusion.
