A transfer where? To Broadway? That production was in the round, and I don’t see it fitting in Circle in the Square. Also, it was a British production of Streetcar that already transferred to NY 4 years ago - what does that have to do with a separate production of Streetcar playing in Massachusetts?

Exactly.  As a personal note, I found it to be rather distracting despite Anderson’s incredible performance.  
 

But this is something totally different...this is AUDRA! Can’t wait for summer in the Berkshires!!!!

This has got to be one of the most exciting pieces of casting news I've seen in a long time. I pray it transfers to Broadway.

Now all I can think of is Carla Gugino as Blanche, she would be stunning surprise

I can't decide which excites me more: the great Audra in that incredible role or Bobby in a muscle shirt. Either way, I'm there. And bringing opera glasses.

Wasn't Audra previously attached to that Scott Rudin/Sam Gold/Adam Driver production of STREETCAR that fell apart a few years ago?

I’d love it if Gugino and McDonald switched off roles in rep, kinda like Linney and Nixon in Little Foxes

I love Audra but feel she's wrong for the role. The stage direction call for Blanche to be "mothlike" and William's wanted her to be the moth attracted to Stanley's "flame". To me, Audra is too sturdy for the role.

Audra will be stupendous as usual.

I agree. She was plenty vulnerable (and fantastic) in Porgy and Bess. Betting against Audra is a losing bet.

There's a reason why she has 6 Tonys. She will be incredible!

It’s also fun to think of Cate Blanchett as a degree of separation, her doing Streetcar led to Blue Jasmine, with Cannavale in the Stanley role. Should be interesting to see him on stage in the play that inspired that fantastic film and his role in it.
