Two more ride ‘Streetcar’

Rubin-Vega, Harris join Broadway revival

Daphne Rubin-Vega and Wood Harris have signed on to the upcoming Broadway revival of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” joining topliners Nicole Ari Parker and Blair Underwood.

Rubin-Vega (“Rent,” “Jack Goes Boating”) will play Stella opposite Underwood as her husband Stanley, with Harris (“The Wire”) on board as Mitch, the prospective suitor of Southern belle Blanche (Parker).

Multiracial “Streetcar” is the second diverse-cast production of a Tennessee Williams play from producer Stephen Byrd, whose 2008 revival of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” — which starred Anika Noni Rose, Terrence Howard, James Earl Jones and Phylicia Rashad in Gotham — did strong biz on the Rialto and went on to play a West End run.

“Streetcar” reteams Rubin-Vega with helmer Emily Mann, whose last Broadway directing credit was the 2003 production of “Anna in the Tropics,” in which the actress also appeared. New Orleans-based trumpeter Terrence Blanchard provides music for “Streetcar.”

Revival targets a spring opening at a theater to be determined.
