    $12.50 for $25.00 - Tennessee Williams' "a Streetcar Named Desire" Adapted into a Sexy Ballet


    Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning drama A Streetcar Named Desire seethes with raw s.. read moreexuality and grit in Scottish Ballet's 2012 contemporary dance adaptation, making its Chicago debut at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Millennium Park. During a steamy summer in New Orleans' French Quarter, a vulnerable Blanche DuBois seeks shelter at the apartment of her pregnant sister Stella and Stella's husband Stanley. Fragile Blanche and temperamental Stanley immediately clash, and tensions further escalate when the two find themselves alone in the house after Stella heads to the hospital to give birth. The story's suspenseful take on lust, desire and betrayal is one that's further enhanced by the sensuality and honesty of dance. Conceptualized by theater and film director Nancy Meckler, and choreographed by international dance star and National Dance Award (UK) winner Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Scottish Ballet's A Streetcar Named Desire is a one-of-a-kind take on an American classic.
