Guthrie Theater's "Streetcar" opens tonight. STELLLLLA!
One happy family: the Guthrie's "Streetcar Named Desire"
by T. Charles Erickson
The cast includesDesperate Housewives
heartthrobRicardo Antonio Chavira
as Stanley Kowalski,Gretchen Egolf
as Blanche DuBois, and Twin Cities starletStacia Rice
as Stella. It's little short of one of the best plays ever written, and we'll be heading in with high hopes for gnarly, complicated, squirm-inducing drama.
I had a chat with director John Miller-Stephany recently about the show, and what he had to say was very common sense: this is a play that you don't want to particularly mess with. It is what it is, a very particular thing, and when it's done well, it's as powerful an experience as you'll come across.
A Streetcar Named Desire runs through August 29. Tickets are priced at $24-$60 and can be purchased at 612.377.2224 or by clicking here.
