‘Streetcar’ sets dates

Broadway revival to open April 22

The Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire” has firmed up its dates, skedding an opening in April at the Broadhurst left available by the abrupt nix of tuner “Rebecca.”

Starring Blair Underwood, Nicole Ari Parker, Daphne Rubin-Vega and Wood Harris, the multiracial staging had been circling the Rialto for several months, but no real estate opened up until the underfunded “Rebecca” shut down two weeks before the start of rehearsals.

Emily Mann helms the revival, which has original music by jazz musician and film composer Terence Blanchard. Producer Stephen Byrd brought an all-black production of Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” to the Rialto that turned a profit and went on to a West End run. He produces “Streetcar” with Alia Jones and Anthony Lacavera.

“Streetcar” begins previews April 3 and opens April 22.
