About A Streetcar Named Desire
In steamy New Orleans, an electrifying battle of wills ignites between Southern

fraying and beauty fading, Blanche is both repelled and intrigued by Stanley’s
primal brutishness—even as he threatens to reveal her darkest secrets and destroy

in A Woman of No Importance) as Blanche DuBois and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s
True Blood) as Stanley Kowalski.
