by BWW News Desk - Jun 29, 2014

BWW Reviews: Group Rep Presents a Gripping STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
by Don Grigware - Jul 28, 2014

Tennessee Williams' classic A Streetcar Named Desire is revered as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century with Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski, two of the most fascinating characters in theatrical history.

Now onstage at the group rep in NoHo, Streetcar may be a daring choice for this company, but under L. Flint Esquerra's caring and detailed direction and with four actors perfectly cast in the lead roles, it is something to sing about. (more...)
