Gillian Anderson must moonlight as a genie, because she's making all my dreams come true. Not only is she going to reprise her role as agent Dana Scully on The X-Files, but her acclaimed Young Vic production of A Streetcar Named Desire is coming to New York City.
What's next? A lifetime discount at the Trader Joe's Wine Shop?
According to EW, the new staging of Tennessee Williams' queer classic directed by Benedict Andrews will debut at nonprofit off-Broadway theater St. Ann's Warehouse. The production will run from April 23 to May 22, 2016.
The show premiered in London last summer and earned Anderson an Olivier Award nomination for her portrayal of Blanche. The Telegraph said her turn as DuBois was "the performance of her career."
For her part, Anderson says that she's always been fascinated by the character.
"I didn't actually know what the draw was till I'd had a chance to jump into her skin," she told The Guardian in February. "It just became one of those things. I felt if I got to the end of my life and had not done it, I would have failed myself in some way."
With all this buzz around Streetcar it might take more than the kindness of strangers to get a seat.
