Theater

'A Streetcar Named Desire' at Intiman Theatre

We wouldn't normally suggest, sight unseen, a production by out-of-town actors we don't know—but Streetcar is a durable work of genius and Sheila Daniels is one of our favorite directors. A fringe-theater star for nearly a decade (and recently hired as Intiman's associate director), Daniels has a tender, almost maternal approach to directing that coaxes deep, multifaceted performances out of her actors. "This play is Shakespeare," Daniels told me in an interview last week. "Shakespeare with New Orleans accents and 100 props." We have great expectations. (Intiman Theatre, 201 Mercer St, 269-1900. 7:30 pm, $10–$48. Through Aug 2.)

But will Greg place paper covers over the bare bulbs?

Will he provide all of us with a vision of Belle Reve? Where is Belle Reve, anyway? That wedding mill by Harvard Exit, or the Gates Estate in Medina? Somewhere else?

You think you're going bowling now?

I want magic!
