Summary

Exhaustively researched and almost flirtatiously opinionated, When Blanche Met Brando is everything a fan needs to know about the ground-breaking New York and London stage productions ofStreetcar as well as the classic Marlon Brando/Vivien Leigh film. The Elia Kazan movie launched Brandos career and defined Leighs. Sam Staggs interviews with all the living cast members of each production make this book satisfying as both a pop culture read and as a deeper piece of thinking about a well-known story. Readers will be delighted with the juicy behind-the-scenes stories about cast, director, and playwright and will also renew their curiosity about the connection between the role of Blanche and Leighs insatiable sexual appetite and her later descent into breakdown. A Streetcar Named Desire is one of the most haunting and most-studied modern plays. Staggs new book will fascinate fans and enrich newcomers understanding of its importance in American theater and movie history.
