Stuck in the DVR doldrums? Why not shake up your entertainment routine and see a play tonight in London—yes, London, with no plane ticket or passport necessary. The country’s esteemed National Theatre is live broadcasting their searing production of Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire to 530 movie theaters around the U.S.
Starring Hannibal’s Gillian Anderson in the role made famous by Vivien Leigh in the influential 1951 film version, and featuring Ben Foster (of X-Men and Lone Survivor) in the brutish Brando role, this compelling version plays out on an ever-revolving set. By all accounts, the production is dizzying—and devastating. Hold onto your popcorn!
