Joe Manganiello To Take Over Off-Broadway With A Streetcar Named Desire!

joe manganiello streetcar named desire

We wonder how good Joe Manganiello’s Marlon Brando impression is!

The True Blood actor is heading to Connecticut to star in an Off-Broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

Taking up the role of Stanley Kowalski, Joe will be directed by Mark Rucker at the Yale Repertory Theatre, while the production is set to run from September 20th to October 12th.

As far as we’re concerned, this is a GREAT casting choice! Joe has the makings of an AH-mazing Stanley.

Just picture it — rather, him. Shirtless. On stage.

Yessss.

Filed under: Broadway Babies

It's one of Tennessee Williams' best, if not his best, and there are a lot of former actresses to live up to in this role. Still, we think she can handle it.

Ya'll probably know Daphne Rubin-Vega best from her role in the original production of Rent, but Daphne has just been cast as Stella in the upcoming Broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

She joins an already impressive cast with Blair Underwood as Stanley and Nicole Ari Parker as Blanche. No word yet on where the production will be held and when in spring it will debut.

Best of luck to you, Daphne! Such a raw talent - we're sure you'll do wonderfully!

Guess Who's Coming To Broadway?!

Everyone wants to do Broadway these days!

Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett, have been approached to play the leads in the revival of A Streetcar Named Desire!

Apparently, however, no deal has been set, and the couple are still in discussions regarding the project, so it will certainly be inneresting to see what develops from this!

It HAS been confirmed, however, that Patti LaBelle has signed on for Fela! in the role of the mother!

Amazing! Now that's something we want to see!

Get tickets soon, though, because she'll only be doing it for the month of September!

We think that she's going to rock it!

Thoughts??
