A Streetcar Named Desire is an immortal classic that thrusts us into a sensual world of desperation, violence and desire. Join a stellar cast, including Bridie Carter as Blanche DuBois, in this hothouse melodrama as we are swept into the deep south of Louisiana, all set to a distinctive New Orleans cultural blend of live music onstage.

A striking work that resonates as strongly today as it did in 1947.  Be seduced by Blanche DuBois as she wrestles with the irrepressible Stanley Kowalski in the bitterly funny and devastatingly sad Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece by Tennessee Williams.
