Review: A Streetcar Named Desire

What: Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire
Who: Writers' Theatre
Where: 325 Tudor Court - Glencoe, IL
When: May 4 - August 15, 2010
Why/Why Not: "Writers' Theatre's set design for A Streetcar Named Desire is worth the drive up to Glencoe alone. Collette Pollard's 1/3 thrust not only impressively emerges the audience into Stanley and Stella Kowalski's humble French Quarter abode, it also pressure cooks 'em. A pressure cooker of tense moments, thrilling performances, and gentle direction stews below the Hubbell's second-story flat. For that we have David Cromer to thank." Read the full review here.
