VEER magazine, a free publication for the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, ran a very good review/summary written by Montague Gammon (http://www.veermag.com/?p=309) of what my husband and I are about to enjoy on a snowy Saturday night out. Of the female lead, BLANCHE DuBOIS (wow, talk about an opportunity to discuss women in film) it notes:
“Stage director Sam Helfrich promises that the Virginia Opera Association production of A Streetcar Named Desire, composer André Previn’s treatment of Tennessee Williams’ famous and famously quoted play, will give audiences an “an incredible actress“ in the role of Blanche, and a “portrayal” of that famously lost soul that will “very [much] surprise … audiences who know the play.”
Okay. ? Can’t wait! Wahoo famously lost souls! Haven’t we all been that once?
