A Streetcar Named Desire, Brooklyn stylee.

Cate Blanchett is lined up to play Blanche DuBois in a Christmas run of A Streetcar Named Desire at the BAM. Directed by Liv Ullman. That'd be alright wouldn't it? I always find Cate Blanchett a bit hammy, so she's going to be great as Blanche. If you're doing a wintery trip to New York get tickets booked. (How Photoshopped is she in this picture btw?)
From November 27—December 20.


  1. God I would love to see this. Saw Rachael Weiz in the Donmar as Blanche recently which was all wrong. She looked way too young. Did we go and see Glenn Close as Blanche together years ago? Best Blanche since Vivien Leigh I reckon....Shame they never found another Stanley like Marlon Brando...

  3. I did go with you to that! She was brilliant. I think Cate will be great too. Did you go to the BAM? It is such a lovely place. Massive Brooklyn cravings at the moment.

    And yeah, MB... I rewatched that recently. He sizzles.
