The U.S. premiere of London’s Young Vic theatre and Joshua Andrews’ acclaimed production of A Streetcar Named Desire. The Tennessee Williams classic opened May 1 and is scheduled to play through June 4 at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.
Directed by Benedict Andrews, the cast features Gillian Anderson as Blanche DuBois, Ben Foster as Stanley Kowalski, Corey Johnson as Mitch and Vanessa Kirby as Stella.
Presented on a turntable set, this newly-imagined production of Streetcar immerses audiences into the action of the play. “All conversations are overheard, there’s nowhere to hide, and the ensuing tragedy purposefully spins toward its inevitable last line,“ state production notes.
