A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE With Gillian Anderson Headed to Broadway in 2016?
The Daily Mail reports that the Young Vic's recent production of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, starring Gillian Anderson as 'Blanche DuBois', is hunting for a New York theatre. Benedict Andrews' production of the Tennessee Williams play is allegedly aiming for a Broadway bow in 2016.
"We're looking for a theatre that can take our revolving set," Anderson told the Mail.
In A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, Blanche's fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister Stella for solace -- but her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski.
Anderson began her career in theatre but achieved international recognition for her portrayal of Special Agent Dana Scully on The X-Files. During the show's nine seasons she won an Emmy, a Golden Globe and two SAG Awards. A Streetcar Named Desire at the Young Vic was Gillian's fourth appearance on the London stage. In 2009 she received an Olivier nomination for her performance as Nora in A Doll's House at the Donmar Warehouse. Prior to this she appeared in The Sweetest Swing In Baseball at the Royal Court, and made her West End debut in Michael Weller's What The Night Is Forin 2002.
On screen, Anderson's credits include Great Expectations, Bleak House (for which she received a BAFTA, Emmy and Golden Globe nomination), Any Human Heart (also BAFTA nominated), and most recently she played DSI Stella Gibson in BBC 2's psychological thriller, The Fall. On the big screen, her numerous credits include The Mighty, Playing By Heart, The House of Mirth (for which she won a British Independent Film Award), The Last King of Scotland, A Cock and Bull Story, Boogie Woogie and Shadow Dancer.
