Photo Flash: First Look at Conservatory Theatre's A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
Point Park University's Conservatory Theatre Company closes its 2014-2015 season with a production of Tennessee Williams' timeless steamy classic, A Streetcar Named Desire. Directed by Martin Giles, A Streetcar Named Desire runs tonight, April 17, through April 26 in the Rauh Theatre at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, 222 Craft Ave. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Considered one of the greatest American plays and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1948, this iconic work explores a clash of cultures between Blanche, a fading Southern beauty, and Stanley, her brutish urban blue-collar brother-in-law. The play opened on Broadway in 1947, directed by Elia Kazan and starring Marlon Brando, Jessica Tandy, Karl Malden and Kim Hunter. It has since been revived many times on Broadway and elsewhere, including a hugely successful 2009 production at London's West End directed by Point Park alum Rob Ashford and starring Rachel Weisz and Ruth Wilson. Kazan's famous 1951 film adaptation won four Academy Awards. Williams' play also has been adapted as an opera, ballet and for television.
The Conservatory Theatre Company production features scenic design by Gianni Downs, costumes by Michael Montgomery, lighting by Cat Wilson, and sound by Steve Shapiro. Sara Snow is stage manager.
Performances will be at 8 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets range from $18 to $20 and can be purchased by calling the Pittsburgh Playhouse box office at 412.392.8000, or at www.pittsburghplayhouse.com.
