Blair Underwood Talks New Broadway Play ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ [Video]

Posted on October 3, 2011 /Theater


Set in the 1950s French Quarter of New Orleans, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, is the story of a culture clash between a fading Southern belle and a member of the industrial, urban working class. Starring Blair Underwood, Nicole Ari Parker, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and Wood Harris.

Streetcar tells the tragic story of fragile former schoolteacher Blanche (Parker), who leaves the family plantation house and moves to New Orleans to live with her sister, Stella (Rubin-Vega), and Stella’s animalistic husband, Stanley (Underwood). She quickly gets a gritty life lesson in the seamy, steamy underbelly of 1940s/50s life in the French Quarter.

Streetcar is set for a Spring 2012 Broadway opening. Visit the play’s new website for updates and tickets.
