Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis Announces 'A Streetcar Named Desire'
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, February 25, 2018 - Sophia Brown and Nick Narcisi will create the tempestuous relationship between renowned characters Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski in "A Streetcar Named Desire," the main stage production of the third annual Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis, May 10-19, at the Grandel Theatre. Tim Ocel will direct the production for this year's Festival titled, "Tennessee Williams: The French Quarter Years."

The French Quarter-themed Festival will also include a one-man show, two panel discussions, a staged reading and a Stella Shouting Contest. The Festival will open with "Streetcar" at 7:30 p.m. on Thurs., May 10, at the Grandel Theatre. Festivities will kick-off at 5:30 p.m. with a traditional brass band, New Orleans-inspired parade through Grand Center led by Harvey Lockhart and the Point of View Jazz Ensemble from Healing Arts Center. The parade is open to the public.

A unique feature to this production of "Streetcar" is that it will reflect Williams' original stage direction in terms of the lead characters' ages. As noted in the original, Blanche is 30 and Stella, 25; productions typically portray Blanche in her mid-forties. "Streetcar" will also feature an original score by local pianist and composer Henry Palkes, whose solo and ensemble performances include concerts throughout the United States, most notably at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Palkes, the affiliate keyboard artist for the St. Louis Symphony since 1992, is currently performing with the First National Tour of "An American in Paris."

"Streetcar" performances are scheduled Thurs. through Sun., May 10-13; Wed. and Thurs., May 16-17; and Sat., May 19. The Stella Shouting Contest will follow the May 13 performance. In addition, there will be no performance on Fri., May 18, as the Festival will join St. Louisans in celebrating the 100th anniversary of the St. Louis Municipal Opera Theatre.

The Wed., May 16, performance will be audio described by Mind's Eye Radio for the visually impaired. Tickets to Festival events will be available March 1 at Visit, or call 314-517-5253, for additional event information.

"After the exhilarating response to some of our shows these last two seasons of the Festival, it's evident that our community has a hunger for Tennessee Williams' work," said Carrie Houk, founder and artistic director of the Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis. "'Streetcar' is one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved plays in the history of American theater and we're excited to be able to showcase it in the newly renovated Grandel Theatre. I think it's important for generations to come, to know how much our city meant to Tennessee Williams and how much of it is reflected in his work. He's an important part of our cultural landscape, both here in St. Louis and beyond."

Spring MUNY MAGIC AT THE SHELDON to Star Laura Michelle Kelly
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, February 4, 2018 - On March 21 and 22, Muny Magic at The Sheldon will star one of The Muny's most popular and acclaimed performers in recent years, the Olivier Award-winning Broadway star, Laura Michelle Kelly.

Kelly starred in The Muny's productions of The King and I (2012) and South Pacific (2013) before spending several years developing and starring in the Broadway production of Finding Neverland (2015). In November of last year, Kelly starred in the highly-acclaimed Lincoln Center national tour of The King and I at The Fabulous Fox Theatre.

"What a wonderful artist to welcome before we begin our 100th season," said Muny Artistic Director and Executive Producer Mike Isaacson. "Our audiences relished her in King and I and South Pacific. She is always a joy to work with, and she inspires us all."

Muny Magic at The Sheldon is The Muny's bi-annual concert series featuring favorite Muny stars in an intimate, personal setting. In her show, Ms. Kelly will reminisce through song and share stories of childhood, love and bravery. Her accompanist will be Muny musical director Charlie Alterman, who arranged and performed for Muny Magic at The Sheldon: My 70s Show! starring Nicholas Rodriguez in 2017.

"Laura Michelle is an incredible talent and has a genuine niceness about her that lights up a room," said Muny President and CEO Denny Reagan. "Her performances on the Muny stage in The King and I and South Pacific were unforgettable, and I know it will be a thrill for our audiences to have her back in St. Louis for this performance at The Sheldon."

Laura Michelle Kelly is perhaps best known for her star-making performance as the title role in the London production of Disney's Mary Poppins. Recently completing a year and a half run portraying Sylvia Llewelyn Davies in the Broadway production of Finding Neverland opposite Matthew Morrison and Kelsey Grammer, Laura Michelle can currently be seen on tour as Anna Leonowens in the four-time Tony Award-winning Lincoln Center production of The King and I.
