A Streetcar Named Desire
St. Ann's Warehouse presents the American Premiere of director Benedict Andrews' visionary production of the timeless Tennessee Williams masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire. Andrews stages the play in the round, with a revolving set in the center, putting the audience in powerfully close proximity to this "wounding portrait of communal loss" (Matt Wolf, The New York Times).
As Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski, Gillian Anderson and Ben Foster lead an explosive cast. The Guardian called Anderson's award-winning performance "stellar" and The Independent described her as "shatteringly powerful and persuasive" in reviews of the production at the Young Vic. The Times UK deemed Ben Foster "riveting," and Matt Wolf, in The New York Times, said of Foster's performance, "This may in fact be the first Stanley I have come across to erase memories of the part's stage and screen originator, Marlon Brando, for the simple reason that Mr. Foster... renders such comparisons irrelevant by making the role less about the character's pectorals and more about his battered pride."
