An immersive new staging, featuring the first Genderqueer actor in the iconic role of Blanche DuBois.
Set in the sultry and sweltering 1940’s French Quarter of New Orleans, this immersive production invites audiences into the Kowalski apartment where young couple Stanley and Stella are joined for the summer by Stella’s damaged, fading debutante sister, Blanche. In a play that famously pins the working class, alpha male Stanley Kowalski against the soft, privileged beauty Blanche DuBois, this production speaks to the divided state of the world today.
