A Conversation with the Cast of A Streetcar Named Desire
Tuesday, March 20, 2012
The Greene Space presented a conversation on the new take on Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Joining us were two-time Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, in his Broadway debut as Stanley, Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent) as Stella, Nicole Ari Parker ("Soul Food") as Blanche, Wood Harris ("The Wire") as Mitch and Director Emily Mann (Artistic Director of Princeton's esteemed McCarter Theatre). We also heard from Executive Producers Stephen Byrd and Alia Jones of Front Row Productions, which presented the hit 2008 Broadway revival of Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Streetcar brings a whole new rhythm to Williams’ enduring portrait of sex, class and secrets in one of America's most fascinating and diverse cities.
