Michigan Theater is hosting London’s National Theater Live productions on the silver screen.
The Young Vic Theater staged Tennessee Williams’ “A Street Car Named Desire” this summer 2014 to record ticket sales. The production stars Gillian Anderson (x-files) as Blanche DuBois opposite Ben Foster (Six Feet Under, Kill Your Darlings) as Stanley with Vanessa Kirby (BBC’s Great Expectations, Three Sisters at the Young Vic) as Stella.

Blanche, an aging Southern Belle, comes to New Orleans to visit her sister Stella and her difficult and unlikable brother-in-law Stanley. Blanche’s presence creates conflict between the couple who have a passionate marriage and love life. Her proper countenance disrupts the married couple’s codependence resulting in emotional violence and the implied sexual abused of Blanche by Stanley, which leads to a breakdown in Blanche’s mental health.

A Street Car Named Desire is a Pulitzer Prize Winning Play and Academy Award Winning Film.
