Last night I went to see A Streetcar Named Desire at the Sydney Theatre. Needless to say, it was the best version of the play I have ever seen (this is the third time I've seen it - I'm quite fond of it). As per usual, but no less awe-inspiring, Cate Blanchett was flawless as Blanche DuBois - particularly in the final scene, and during the monologue about the boy she loved.

As fantastic as Cate was, however, the real show-stopper was Joel Edgerton as Stanley Kowalski. He was absolutely amazing. Better than Brando. Menacing, loving, brutal, tender.. all at once. And seeing his bum wasn't too bad either! I'm fairly sure tickets are sold out, but if you can manage to scrounge some up I highly advice you pay whatever they're asking! Also, for those outside of Australia, I believe the show is travelling to New York after this season finishes. GO SEE IT!
