A Streetcar named Desire

Blanche DuBois is something to listen to; that sense of strong personal values and another world. But broken by life, by men and perhaps by alcohol. And having read Tennessee Williams‘ family story, a heart-breaking final scene as people gently coax her to leave her sister’s home for consignment. (Otherwise, his play is too cruel.)
This small stage production limits the lead actor’s arena but not her performance (wow!); giving more credibility to Blanche’s world view (and less camp) than the more famous productions.
I’d say go see, but it is already sold out. (e:4, s:4, p:4).
(BTW, nice new seats in the Lace Market Theatre.)
