Not as intense as expected, Indulgent, Great acting, Creative, Ambitious

See it if you like Tennessee William and/or this cast, or just want to see an old play that you haven’t seen before.

Don't see it if you expect something groundbreaking. It’s a well-staged and well-acted production, nothing much more than that.

Patsy ferran, Masterful, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you've never seen Streetcar on stage/are interested in seeing one of the best Blanche DuBois portrayals

Don't see it if You saw the Almeida run -- the Phoenix lacks the intimacy, the suffocation and the immediacy.

Intelligent, Profound, Intense, Disappointing

See it if If you like the storyline. The main actress gives it her all and is fab. It's an interesting take. Really liked the use of water.

Don't see it if This wasn't your more traditional version and I prefer stage sets than just props. That said it did bring out the acting more.
