Cate's a US hit in 'Streetcar'

Baltimore Sun :

"Washington's blockbuster fall season continues as actress Cate Blanchett (left) takes on the role of Blanche DuBois this month at the Kennedy Center. The potent mix of A-list celeb and A-list play has the district aflutter. But the bad news is that it’s pretty much sold out. So good luck relying on the kindness of strangers to find a ticket."

The Washington Post :

" Blanchett is certainly the most heartbreaking Blanche I've ever experienced. This is the kind of evening you want to urge people to see, to remind them of theatre's illuminating range, its ability to force you out of your resistant natural scepticism, to assess, reflect and feel,"


"Australian star Cate Blanchett is winning standing ovations and rave reviews from US audiences for her heart-rending performance in the Tennessee Williams classic "A Streetcar Named Desire."
