Strong, Steamy, Sexy - Blair Underwood, Nicole Ari Parker in A Streetcar Named Desire 2012 Broadway

S T E L L A!

How many of you non New Yorkers knew that Blair Underwood and Nicole Ari Parker were starting on Broadway in a Streetcar Named Desire?

If I lived in NY or anywhere close to it, I would buy me a ticket and check out this production of multi ethnic actors starring in one of Tennessee Williams' greatest masterpieces.

This season, desire is taking on a whole new rhythm as the greatest play from America's most celebrated playwright sizzles onto the stage at The Broadhurst Theatre. 
From the producers of the trailblazing 2008 Broadway production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, starring James Earl Jones and Terrence Howard, comes a hot new take on Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Leading the cast is 2-time Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, in his Broadway debut as Stanley Kowalski, Nicole Ari Parker ("Soul Food") as Blanche DuBois, Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent) as Stella Kowalski and Wood Harris ("The Wire") as Mitch. Directed by Emily Mann (Artistic Director of Princeton's esteemed McCarter Theatre) and featuring an original score by 5-time Grammy Award winner Terence Blanchard, this scintillating Streetcar brings a whole new rhythm to Williams's enduring portrait of sex, class and secrets in one of America's most fascinating and diverse cities. Come and feel the heat.
