A Streetcar Named Desire

On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

Previews are May 14-19 | Opening night May 20
By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Chris Coleman

Tennessee Williams’ iconic Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is an exquisite study of the unraveling of Blanche DuBois, a fading southern belle. When she arrives unexpectedly on the doorstep of her sister Stella and her brother-in-law Stanley, Blanche is clinging desperately to a persona designed to help her survive. Over the course of one hot, sultry New Orleans summer, Blanche’s fragile facade slowly crumbles as she meets her match in the rough-hewn and hyper masculine Stanley, who is determined to expose her.

Run Time: Approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.
