APRIL 23-MAY 22

GILLIAN ANDERSON & BEN FOSTER in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

We’ve got our tickets. Let us know when you are in town and we can meet up. Tickets maybe sold out or close to it so GO NOW AND BUY YOURS!!!

FROM WEBSITE Arguably, St. Ann’s Warehouse is the only NY theater capable of staging Benedict Andrews’ maverick production of A Streetcar Named Desire, featuring Gillian Anderson, Ben Foster, Corey Johnson and Vanessa Kirby. With its transparent, revolving set, all conversations are overheard, there’s nowhere to hide and the ensuing tragedy purposefully spins toward its inevitable last line. The New York Times called the production “a wounding portrait of communal loss.” This American Premiere marks the first collaboration between St. Ann’s Warehouse and London’s Young Vic.

“Ms. Anderson is at her very best in Benedict Andrews’ ferocious new production of Tennessee Williams’ immortal play…

[Ben Foster is] the first Stanley I have come across to erase memories of the part’s stage and screen originator, Marlon Brando…less about the character’s pectorals and more about his battered pride”

-THE NEW YORK TIMES
 
“Benedict Andrews’ version steams off the stage with pain, excitement and clamour”
-THE OBSERVER
 
“Foster as Stanley matches Miss Anderson blow for blow in their big showdowns…Kirby is touchingly vulnerable as Stella”
-SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
 
“Gillian Anderson is simply unmissable, Benedict Andrews’ direction is admirably thoughtful and bold… Vanessa Kirby eloquent, Ben Foster explosive, and there’s a lovely measured Corey Johnson”
-EVENING STANDARD

GILLIAN ANDERSON LEADS THIS NEW YORK TRANSFER

This modern-day staging of Tennessee Williams feverish classic arrives at St Ann’s after dazzling West End audiences in 2014. Heading the cast as the ill-fated Blanche DuBois is Golden Globe and Emmy winner Gillian Anderson, currently starring on the small screen in The Fall and Hannibal, but perhaps still best known for her iconic portrayal of Agent Scully in Fox’s The X-Files.

Directed by Benedict Andrews, this simmering cauldron of sexual frustration and resentment plays out on a revolving set, which allows the audience a window into every cramped inch of the play’s sweltering New Orleans apartment setting. It was first staged at London’s Young Vic in 2014, and became the fastest selling show in the venue’s history. The production earned universal acclaim, with the UK’s leading theatre critic, Charles Spencer of The Telegraph, describing Anderson’s turn as “the performance of her career”.

The main cast transfer over for this New York production. Joining Anderson are stage star Ben Foster (Lone Survivor) as the surly Stanley, and Vanessa Kirby (Jupiter Ascending) as Stella.

WHAT IS STREETCAR ABOUT?

When faded Southern belle Blanche finds her decadent life crumbling around her, she falls on the mercy of her timid sister Stella for some relief. However, she didn’t factor in Stella’s domineering husband Stanley, who is determined to control his wife ahead of the birth of their first child.

Blanche is intrigued with the dynamics of their relationship, and attempts to attract new men by holding court in the Kowalski’s apartment, to Stanley’s anger. Blanche and Stanley butt heads constantly, and a huge confrontation between the two leads to a devastating fate for Blanche as she finally experiences a psychotic breakdown.

A photo posted by Keaton Simons (@keatonsimons) on

FROM TICKETFLY: The Los Angeles Times described the voice of their native son, blues/rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Keaton Simons, as having a “lived-in quality that will echo in our minds and hearts for years to come.” Anyone who’s seen Keaton perform live knows why the crowd erupts when he picks up a guitar from his arsenal on stage (usually consisting of a customized DeTemple Stellacasta, fretless guitar, baritone and acoustic). Premier Guitar magazine has welcomed Keaton as a guest guitar teacher on their website and says, “Simons can play.” In addition, Keaton has played a role in the hip hop world as a writer, musical director, singer, bassist and guitarist with notable acts like Snoop Dogg, Gnarls Barkley, Tre Hardson of The Pharcyde and underground hip hop legend Medusa. He’s also performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Last Call with Carson Daly and most recently, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Keaton’s music is regularly placed in feature films and television shows, including Sons of Anarchy, Private Practice, NCIS and Numb3rs.
