Emily Mann (Anna in the Tropics, Miss Witherspoon) directs the new, multi-racial production of Streetcar, which is produced by Stephen C. Byrd and Alia M. Jones of Front Row Productions, who were also behind the all-African-American revival of Cat On a Hot Tin Roof on Broadway in 2008.
Streetcar will begin previews April 3 towards an April 22 opening at the Broadhurst. It will play a limited run through July 22.
The cast is led by two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Blair Underwood ("Sex in the City," "In Treatment") as Stanley Kowalski, Nicole Ari Parker ("Soul Food," "Boogie Nights") as Blanche DuBois and two-time Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent, Jack Goes Boating, Anna in the Tropics) as Stella Kowalski. Also appearing are veteran dancer-choreographer Carmen De Lavallade (Come Sunday, House of Flowers, "Carmen Jones") as the Kowalski's Mexican neighbor, Wood Harris ("Above the Rim," "Remember the Titans") as Blanche's suitor Mitch, Tony nominee Amelia Campbell (Waiting in the Wings, Our Country's Good), Aaron Clifton Moten, Jacino Taras Riddick ("White Collar," "Army Wives"), Matthew Saldívar (The Wedding Singer, Grease) and Count Stovall (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Driving Miss Daisy).
The creative team includes scenic designer Eugene Lee, lighting designer Edward Pierce, costume designer Paul Tazewell and sound designer Mark Bennett. Streetcar will have choreography by Camille Brown and an original score by Grammy Award-winning jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard.
