Opens Friday, Feb. 14

The frayed Southern belle Blanche DuBois battles gritty New Orleans and its embodiment, Stanley Kowalski, in Playhouse Theatre Tulsa’s production of A Streetcar Named Desire, opening Friday, Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m. Tennessee Williams’ 1948 Pulitzer Prize-winning play inspired an equally famous 1951 film adaptation starring Vivian Leigh and Marlon Brando. The role of Blanche beckons artists of the theater kind, and this time, Playhouse Artistic Director Courtneay Sanders answers to play the former schoolteacher living in her delusions. The show continues through the weekend with performances at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 16. The play ends Feb. 22 at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, 110 E. Second St. Tickets are $9-$24 at www.tulsapac.com.
