A Streetcar Named Desire coming soon
New York: Front Row Productions (Stephen Byrd, Alia Jones) is proud to announce their upcoming production of A Streetcar Named Desire lated to hit the boards, Spring, 2012. Theatre TBA.
Tennessee Williams’ sultry drama, A Streetcar Named Desire is set against the sexy backdrop of New Orleans' gritty French Quarter A Streetcar Named Desire tells the tale of former school teacher and socialite Blanche DuBois (Nicole Ari Parker), as she's forced to move in with her sister Stella and her animalistic husband Stanley (Blair Underwood). But the fragile, Blanche quickly gets a gritty life lesson in the seamy, steamy underbelly of 1940's New Orleans.
The legendary Terence Blanchard has signed on to provide an original soundscape for the production. Streetcar was last seen on Broadway in 2005 starring Natasha Richardson, Amy Ryan and John C. Reilly.
Front Row Production’s multi-racial production of A Streetcar Named Desire, is a follow-up to their highly successful Broadway production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which starred Terrence Howard, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose and James Earl Jones, and was directed by Debbie Allen.
The production subsequently moved to London’s West End (with Jones and Rashad joined by Sanaa Lathan as Maggie and Adrian Lester as Brick) where it was honored with the “What’s Onstage” and the prestigious “Olivier” awards for Best Revival
