The Playhouse Tulsa Presents "A Streetcar Named Desire"

Feb 14, 2014

"A Streetcar Named Desire" --- which earned playwright Tennessee Williams the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948, was the basis for the classic 1951 film with Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh, and remains one of the fundamental if not defining works of the American stage --- is opening at 7:30pm tonight (Friday the 14th) here in Tulsa, in a new production at the Tulsa PAC's John H. Williams Theatre. This version of "Streetcar" is being produced by The Playhouse Tulsa; it's running through February 22nd. Our guest on ST is Cody Daigle, who's directing the production, which also features Courtneay Sanders as Blanche and Cody Shelton as Stanley. As we learn on today's show, this production of "Streetcar" will also include a special musical component: Suzy Meredith-Orr will perform the show's incidental score and jazz tunes.
