Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) and Ben Foster (Lone Survivor) take on the iconic roles of Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski in this modern update of Tennessee Williams' steamy Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire. Now you can see this sell-out production screened at Symphony Space. The play portrays a Southern belle who's fallen from grace and the rough-edged blue collar relations who ultimately seal her tragic fate. Critics' Circle Award-winning director Benedict Andrews sets this latest retelling in the round and gives the characters a more modern look. All the sexual tension and self-destruction unfold onstage at London's Young Vic theater, which broadcasts the production in HD to more than 1,000 screens around the world. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
1936. Charles Chaplin. 87 minutes. USA. Black & White.
The Little Tramp punches in and wigs out inside a factory where gizmos like an employee-feeding machine may someday make the lunch hour last just 15 minutes. Bounced into the ranks of the unemployed, he teams with a street waif (Paulette Goddard) to pursue bliss and a paycheck, finding misadventures as a roller-skating night watchman, a singing waiter whose hilarious song is gibberish, a jailbird and more. In the end, as Tramp and waif walk arm and arm into an insecure future, we know they’ve found neither bliss nor a paycheck but, more importantly, each other.
