Desparate Housewives' Ricardo Antonio Chavira, to star in Guthrie's "Streetcar"
Seems Ricardo Antonio Chavira will be traveling from Wisteria Lane to Elysian Fields Avenue this summer. Today the Guthrie announced that the Desperate Housewives player will be appearing in the iconic role of Stanley Kowalski in Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire. Now, Stanley is a role which requires a lot of macho swagger and pretending to commit acts of drunken loutishness and outright hypocritical criminality. Chavira might not be a complete stranger to depicting such things, though.
Sure, Stanley Kowalski got drunk and hit his wife, inexcusably ruinedBlanche DuBois
, and gave Marlon Brando a vehicle for frightening people. ButCarlos Solis
, Chavira's character for six seasons onHousewives
, built a resume for himself that has included switching his wife's birth control pills, committing hate crimes, going to prison for dodgy money deals, and driving a woman to attempt suicide.
