A Streetcar Named Desire

It’s happened. After a decade and several productions, I think I finally “get” Tennessee Williams. At least, A Streetcar Named Desire, currently running at the Young Vic, is such a fantastic production that I can finally appreciate Williams’ status as one of the great American playwrights. 297 more words

A Streetcar Named Desire

It seems you have to go to The Cut if you like your drama intense and your productions cutting edge. Across the road at the Old Vic there’s an extraordinary interpretation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and now here at the Young Vic there’s this thoroughly modern version of Tennessee Williams’ most famous play. 399 more words
