Immerse yourself in a live performance of one of the greatest American plays with A Streetcar Named Desire. Tennessee Williams' landmark drama depicts the culture clash between the Old South and the rising urban working class, and makes for an essential live theatrical experience. The intense passion behind brutish Stanley Kowalski's iconic howl of "Stelllaaa!" and the tragic emotion behind Blanche DuBois' fragile romantic illusions of Southern gentility is brought to powerful life on stage. Set during a steamy summer in New Orleans' French Quarter, raw pathos leads ultimately to tragedy. Williams' play was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Learn More

An outstanding performance by Leslie Hardy Loyd and Jerry Lloyd. So vividly done that it felt real. A really special performance, well worth seeing for a down to earth look at life in early middle age (if I can remember so far back).
The setting is a walk-up apartment on Manhattan’s West Side where, as the curtain rises, Frankie (a waitress) and Johnny (a short-order cook who works in the same restaurant) are discovered in bed. It is their first encounter, after having met several weeks ago on the job, and Frankie is hopeful that Johnny will now put on his clothes and depart, so she can return to her usual routine of watching TV and eating ice cream. But Johnny, a compulsive talker (and romantic), has other ideas. He is convinced that he loves Frankie, a notion that she, at first, considers to be ridiculous. She has had more disappointments than delights in life, and he is the veteran of one broken marriage already. And neither of them is in the bloom of youth. Yet out of their sometimes touching, sometimes hilarious interplay the promise of a relationship beyond a “one-night stand” does begin to emerge.
Intended for audiences 14 years old and older.
