Terence Blanchard to Compose for Broadway ‘Streetcar’ Revival

The Tennessee Williams classic is set to open in 2012

Trumpeter/composer Terence Blanchard will compose music for the upcoming Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’ classic A Streetcar Named Desire. Directed by Emily Mann and starring Blair Underwood, the show is scheduled to open in the spring of 2012.

Set in New Orleans’ French Quarter in the 1940s, the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama tells the tale of former school teacher and socialite Blanche DuBois, who is forced to move in with her sister Stella and her husband Stanley. Streetcar was last seen on Broadway in 2005.
