NEW YORK CITY - This season, desire is taking on a whole new rhythm as the greatest play from America's most celebrated playwright sizzles onto the stage at The Broadhurst Theatre.

From the producers of the trailblazing 2008 Broadway production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, starring James Earl Jones and Terrence Howard, comes a hot new take on Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Leading the cast is 2-time Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, in his Broadway debut as Stanley Kowalski, Nicole Ari Parker ("Soul Food") as Blanche DuBois, Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent) as Stella Kowalski and Wood Harris ("The Wire") as Mitch. Directed by Emily Mann (Artistic Director of Princeton's esteemed McCarter Theatre) and featuring an original score by 5-time Grammy Award winner Terence Blanchard, this scintillating Streetcar brings a whole new rhythm to Williams's enduring portrait of sex, class and secrets in one of America's most fascinating and diverse cities. Come and feel the heat.

Blair Underwood (Stanley) has distinguished himself as an award-winning actor/director/producer who continues to showcase his multitude of talents in the world of film, television, theatre and literature. Underwood most recently starred as the President of the United States in the NBC drama "The Event," and co-starred in the independent drama film "Homework" (Fox Searchlight) opposite Emma Roberts and Freddy Highmore.

She has been a member of the Labyrinth Theater Company since 1992. Ms. Rubin-Vega is perhaps best known for the roles she originated, including Mimi (Rent) and Conchita (Anna in the Tropics), both Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway shows.
