Reviews: Broadway's Latest 'Streetcar' Leaves Something to Be Desired
On the heels of New Orleans' recent staging of A Streetcar Named Desire about as close to the source as possible, Broadway decided Tennessee Williams' famed play was due for some reworking. That is to say, they cast African Americans in the lead roles. The update, which replaces Galatoire's with Dooky Chase and brushes the Kowalskis' Polish heritage aside, opened this weekend to, shall we say, mixed reviews. The main verdict? L.A. Law's Blair Underwood looks good, but he's no Brando.

'Streetcar' to Screen Among Sculpture
by Brad Rhines
Between playing poker and brushing up on the finer points of the Napoleonic Code, Stanley Kowalski seems unlikely to spend his Friday night at the New Orleans Museum of Art, but that’s just what he’ll be doing as NOMA presents the film A Streercar Named Desire this Friday in the Bestoff Sculpture Garden.
