A Streetcar Named Desire

We saw the Sydney Theatre Company's production of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire last night. Directed by Liv Ullmann and starring Cate Blanchett as Blanche Dubois it was one heck of a night.

Joel Edgerton (Stanley Kowalski), Cate Blanchett (Blanche Dubois) and Robin McLeavy (Stella).

This is a superb production with excellent acting across the entire ensemble. I do not have the skill to put in words how wonderful is Blanchett's performance. Three and a quarter hours of extraordinary theatre.

The production will tour to John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington from 29 October to 21 November 2009 and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York from 27 November to 21 December 2009.


  1. I bet this is great! I didn't know Cate was going to be in this production!

  2. How cool!
    I'd have loved to have seen this!
