Delicate and neurotic Blanche Dubois seeks refuge with her sister Stella and her unsophisticated husband Stanley, but their mnage-a-trois is destined to end badly. Streetcar is sung in English. The two productions play on alternate evenings. Admission 85-20. Performances at 19.30. La Bohme 18, 20, 22, 24, 26 Nov. Streetcar 19, 21, 23 & 25 Nov.
