Look Back at the 2012 Revival of A Streetcar Named Desire Starring Blair Underwood and Nicole Ari Parker

The production, directed by Emily Mann, opened at the Broadhurst Theatre April 22, 2012.

Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire returned to Broadway in an Emily Mann-helmed revival, which opened at the Broadhurst Theatre April 22, 2012. The production played 23 previews and 105 performances before closing July 22, 2012, earning a Tony nomination for Best Costume Design of a Play.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama tells the story of what happens when southern belle Blanche DuBois moves to New Orleans to live with her sister, Stella, and her brutish brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski, in a dingy apartment.
