"Makes impressive, honest choices that reveal new colors in the classic script. The production distinguishes itself through its unique portrait of Blanche…She comes off here as a practical woman broken down by the sorry and painful conditions of her life…As portrayed by Russell Peck, the first genderqueer actor the Williams estate has granted the rights to play the role…Blanche doesn't seem like a liar. Her untruths and misdirections are central to the character, so this choice is significant."
“A new, immersive Off-Off-Broadway production of 'A Streetcar Named Desire' makes history as the first to feature a genderqueer actor as Blanche DuBois, but that’s only one reason to see this uncensored and visceral take on an American classic, performed mere feet from the audience and loaded with complex and raw performances. A must-see."
“A laser-hot production that features the first genderqueer actor playing Blanche...But the production transcends the casting milestone and renders a riveting production that is amazingly both fresh in drama and raw in staging...Hourigan, working with a book we know almost too well, doesn’t let it cool down...The fight scenes ignite the stage...The love scene...is pretty realistic...Most inspired is what Hourigan and Peck do with the devastating last scene.”
