'A Streetcar Named Desire,' With Modern Sex Appeal, Plays at the Yale Rep
A Streetcar Named Desire is a play that carries so much baggage, it can be hard to grasp why it was so popular in the first place. So many revivals of this Pulitzer-winning Tennessee Williams classic are relentlessly bleak, or angry, or dark, that it's easy to forget this is a play that, intermittently, is about love and hope and optimism.
