Tennessee Williams 'A Battle of Angels' at Allways Lounge, Reviewed
While the smart set at the the Tennessee Williams Festival is settling into watch the third part of John Biguenet’s Katrina Trilogy, Mold in a small bar room/theater Off-Off-Royal Street Tennessee Williams’ first produced play–A Battle of Angels–is given a compelling production at the Allways Lounge Theater.
A Streetcar Named Desire, Reviewed
NoDef Theatre Critic Jim Fitzmorris gets off at Elysian Fields, and heads to Michalopoulos Stuido for Southern Rep and InsideOut's production of Tennessee Williams' New Orleans-set classic of the American stage.
A Theatrical Desire
Facing the Stage
The boys from Broadway South got one thing right. They understood that New Orleans is the main event. Final Fours, Super Bowls, NBA All-Star Games, The Jazz Fest, and, the mother of them all, Mardi Gras, have proved that New Orleans is quite capable of pulling it off in grand style.
Traces of Tennessee Williams
On Playwright's 100th Birthday, Annual Festival Offers More than Memorials
With a streetcar slated to approach Desire (St.) and restaurants baring his characters' names inhabiting a couple buildings on his former Chartres St. stomping grounds, Tennessee Williams' bursting-at-the-seams visions of the French Quarter are perhaps coming to bare. Then again, there's little of Marlon Brando's oozing Stanley Kowalski (or Stanley's cluttered, shoebox apartment, for that matter) in fine dining and throwback public transit.
Tennessee Williams one famously described his life in the Quarter, saying that he would often go outside to check his mail, and wind up not returning home for three days. So, clearly he got it. (There is also that play about the streetcar or something adding to his bonafides.)
This week, the city honors him with a festival. There will be plays performed, writing workshops, and most importantly the notorious Stella shouting contest!
