A full-cast recording of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire on audio for the first time!

Blanche DuBois arrives at her sister Stella’s New Orleans apartment seeking refuge from a troubled past—but her ethereal spirit irks Stella’s husband, the loutish Stanley Kowalski. Crudely, relentlessly, he unmasks the lies and delusions that sustain Blanche, until her frail hold on reality is shockingly severed.

This atmospheric recording of Tennessee Williams’ powerful classic stars Rosemary Harris and James Farentino as Blanche and Stanley—roles they performed to acclaim in a smash revival at New York’s Lincoln Center.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The overall production quality is excellent with musical segues and sound effects that enhance without distracting the listeners.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “There are few histrionics in Rosemary Harris, James Farentino, and Patricia Conolly's naturalistic portrayals of Blanche, Stanley, and Stella. Their vocal choices make the play's final scenes sound all the more credible, and devastating. A classic performance of an American classic.”
