SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga University’s Magnuson Theatre continues its 2010- 2011 season with Tennessee Williams’ classic drama “A Streetcar Named Desire” starting March 23. Show dates are 7:30 p.m. March 23-26 with one 2 p.m. matinee on March 27. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students.

The show comes together under the direction of Brian Russo, Ph.D. Russo is enthusiastic about his work on the play, and describes “Streetcar” as a showcase of a vibrant relationship between “two of the American theatre’s most fierce antagonists, Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski, who struggle over love, sexuality, and identity.”

The March production of “Streetcar” fits perfectly with Gonzaga’s repertoire of theater classics during the 2010-2011 season.

“Although the production is done as we celebrate Williams’ 100th birthday, the play is beautifully alive and relevant as our overly dynamic world crushes sensitivity,” said Russo.

Tickets are available now; reservations are recommended as tickets sell out quickly. The Magnuson Theatre Box Office is open from 2-5 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday at (509) 313-6553.
