Caedmon is proud to release this archival full-cast recording of Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire. Blanche DuBois arrives at her sister Stella's New Orleans apartment seeking refuge from a troubled past but her ethereal spirit irks Stella's husband, the loutish Stanley Kowalski. Crudely, relentlessly, he unmasks the lies and delusions that sustain Blanche, until her frail hold on reality is shockingly severed. This atmospheric recording of Tennessee Williams's powerful classic stars Rosemary Harris and James Farentino as Blanche and Stanley roles they performed to acclaim in a smash revival at New York's Lincoln Center.More

Great play, questionable acting

I absolutely adore Streetcar Named Desire, and I LOVE Tennessee Williams, but I found this dramatization way, way, WAY over the top! I understand that Blanche Dubois is a frail, hysterical woman, but the actress' wailing really just made me cringe. I will be requesting my credit back.
The actor who narrated Stanley Kowalski was very good, however.
Only the fact that it is a Streetcar Named Desire.
I found myself cringing during most of the audiobook because of the actress' hysterical, wailing.
