Memoir/Share: My Own Private Tennessee
Today is the 100th anniversary of Tennessee Williams' birth and it is truly something to celebrate. Please share, in the comments section below this article, your first exposure to a Tennessee Williams work.
Mine was in French: a production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in Quebec City. But my first English-language production was at Centaur Theatre and it was Streetcar Named Desire. I wish I could tell you more than it starred Elizabeth Shepherd as Blanche and Nick Mancuso as Stanley but after the very hunky Mancuso took his shirt off during the play, I went blind and deaf for the rest of the show.
