Everyone’s A Critic - A Streetcar Named Desire

Director Joe Hasham is taking on A Streetcar Named Desire for the fourth time, with this iteration adapting the iconic Tennessee Williams play in Mandarin. A Pulitzer Prize-winning play that became an Oscar-winning movie, the story follows Blanche Dubois, who leaves behind a privileged life and moves into a shabby New Orleans apartment with her sister, Stella, and Stella’s brutish husband, Stanley - but there is more to Blanche’s past than she is letting on. We review the production, and talk about what this staging adds to the classic story.
