Some plays can be summed up in an image, others a phrase, but only one masterpiece can be summarized with a scream: "Stelllaaa!!!" That masterpiece, of course, is A Streetcar Named Desire, the Pulitzer-winning drama by Tennessee Williams, which was famously adapted into a feature film featuring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh. Set during a steamy summer in New Orleans' French Quarter, a vulnerable Blanche DuBois seeks shelter at the apartment of her pregnant sister Stella and Stella's husband Stanley. Fragile Blanche and brutish Stanley immediately clash, and tensions only escalate when the two are left alone in the house after Stella heads to the hospital to give birth. The Group Rep presents A Streetcar Named Desire directed by L. Flint Esquerra. Learn More

Speaking for myself, the 12 others who joined me, and two who tagged along with their own tickets - all 15 of us thought The Paris Letter was great!
A big discussion item at dinner after the play - the acting well done, characters well...continued
Before Stonewall, when “Are you a friend of Dorothy’s?” was code for “Are you gay?,” when you went to a psychiatrist to cure homosexuality — a man could marry, have kids and “prove” he was straight. This play affirms the bonds between human beings and takes us on an electrifying journey through time to show the struggle of a man born one generation too early. Sandy Sonnenberg lives a life of privilege which lulls him into believing he is untouchable. His extra-curricular affairs are buried – until he becomes entangled in a disastrous financial scheme which cuts the thin thread that ties him to a conventional life.
