A Streetcar Named Desire

by Tennessee Williams

Williams’ Iconic Pulitzer Prize-winning drama that follows Blanche’s odyssey from the columns of her ancestral Mississippi Delta mansion into the depths of the French Quarter is fraught with steamy sensuality. Blanche needs a world surrounded by softness and magic, but grief and consequences creep into the household of her sister Stella as soon as Blanche comes to visit. Will Blanche be able to start her new life in the Big Easy, or will she be crushed against something brutal and hard?

Penny Dreadfuls: The Remarkable Rooming-House of Madame Le Monde by Tennessee Williams

TWTC closes our 2024 Season as slapstick and horror abound in this night of grotesque Tennessee Williams vignettes set against a macabre funhouse, with a cast of bizarre and zany characters. No one knows what the Madame’s got in store in this shock show from the most hilarious and creepy corners of Williams’ imagination.

 

Not for the faint of heart!

Tennessee Williams Theatre Company Joins Loyola University New Orleans in Professional Residency

Exciting new partnership brings performances to Loyola

 

(NEW ORLEANS – March 29, 2019) The Tennessee Williams Theatre Company of New Orleans is officially in residence at Loyola University New Orleans! Based in the city that Williams called his home and his inspiration, the Tennessee Williams Theatre Company is the only professional theatre company in the U.S. committed solely to producing plays with a major focus on the works of America’s greatest playwright. 

The fun starts this month with a company performance of Suddenly Last Summer, to be conducted from March 28 to April 13 in Loyola’s Lower Depths Theatre in collaboration with the annual Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival. Following a pre-arranged performance this summer at the Marigny Opera House, the company will perform at Loyola.

“Loyola University New Orleans has a history of welcoming professional theatre companies and practitioners to campus, as a way of continuing to nurture our students’ education and professional development,” said C. Patrick Gendusa, who was announced this month as the new chair of Loyola’s Department of Theatre Arts and Dance in Loyola’s College of Music and Media.

“One of our goals is to develop an ongoing collaborative relationship and internship program with the Tennessee Williams Theatre Company, while enjoying the opportunity to bring an entire new audience to our campus.”

Gendusa, who helped usher in Loyola’s musical theatre degree program several years ago, this month directs Violet, a multi-award winning musical with music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by Brian Crawley. Gendusa has lined up an exciting 2019-2020 theatre season, bringing exciting new directors to campus, including Bryan Batt and Tom Cianfini, Mark Routhier, and Anne-Liese Juge Fox. 

Gendusa has also lined up master classes and visits to campus from leading artists, beginning with an upcoming master class for Loyola students with choreographer Phil Colgan, dance captain and company member for the national tour of Hamilton.

“We are excited to enter our fifth season with this exciting partnership,” said Nick Shackleford, Co-Artistic Director for the Tennessee Williams Theatre Company. “We have rapidly grown as a newer theatre in town, and we are honored to call Loyola University New Orleans home for our artists and burgeoning audience—and of course, we look forward to creating meaningful opportunities for Loyola’s diverse and talented student population.” 
 

TWTC would like to give a special thanks to:
 Department Chair: C. Patrick Gendusa
& Laura Hope, Marty Aikens and TWTC Board Member Jeffrey LaHoste!
