    A play, especially one by Mr. Williams, is always fun to read and re-imagine. I've seen most of his big plays: "Streetcar"; "Glass Menagerie"; "Cat on a Hot Tine Roof"; "Night of the Iguana"; "The Rose Tattoo". As well as having seen: "Small Craft Warnings" and such. But "Streetcar" is so amazing for the forces of genteel courtesies vs. raw, sexual passions brought together and ultimately entangled in sometimes funny but terrible ways. And then there is the past: Blanche's past with hints of pedophilia, and her total ignorance of managing estate issues and Stanley's past with his ignorance, rage and yet, a sort of innocence that he then betrays by forcing himself upon Blanche. We, as the audience, laugh at and empathize with both of the principals and the agonies of their smaller, fellow cast members. Quite a thing to experience...
