Rated 4.0

An iconic classic shines in this absorbing three-hour production. Veteran Trish Adair is memorable as Blanche, the faded belle. Jimmy McCammon simmers and erupts as working-class Stanley; he also radiates so much sexy energy that you grasp why wife Stella (Grace Fae) puts up with him. Kudos to director John Deaderick for staging a Tennessee Williams classic during the 100th anniversary of the playwright’s birth. Th 7:30pm; F 8pm; Sa 2pm & 8pm. Through 11/5. $20-$25.
