Experience “A Streetcar Named Desire” at the Roxy Regional Theatre

 

Set in the romantic past of New Orleans Blanche DuBois’s neurotic and genteel pretensions are no match for the brutish realities of her brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski.

StreetcarNamedDesireThe Roxy Regional Theatre is currently staging the Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire.”

To fully understand the intricacies of this masterpiece play, in this writers opinion you just have to come from the south. Otherwise it is all too easy to miss the subtle interplay of these delicious personalities as they intertwine in a tapestry that is as old as, well the south.

You have Blanche DuBois the socialite (Alicia Kelly); the submissive wife Stella (Chase Kamata);  Stanley the abuser (Justin Barnum); the dotting son Harold  (Brenden Cataldo);  among others. The acting was tight, performers seamlessly melding into their roles as if they had been born to them.

During the Vietnam era I watched Bob Hope on TV bringing entertainment tours to the troops in Vietnam.  Bob Hope showed how important laughter was as it worked its magic on the most stressed-out Americans.  If laughter could work on them, it could work on anyone.

Before the seriousness of life eventually swallowed them, my parents loved to laugh.  They grew up in hard times of the depression when it was impossible to laugh but imperative.  The saying, “Laugh or die” may have grounded itself in those times.  When TV found its way into our house in the 60’s, many early TV shows were focused on humor:  Jackie Gleason and I Love Lucy are two we used to watch.  It takes great talent to be able to do something perfectly and then do it clumsily.  Old movies showed extraordinary talent:  singing, dancing, and acting with a main course of romance laid on a table of humor.  Something for everybody.  Bob Hope packed all this up and went to the soldiers with it. «Read the rest of this article»
