As I am sure you people know already freshly (and deservedly) Oscar nominated actor Paul Mescal is doing a version of A Streetcar Named Desire on stage in London -- right now? later? I haven't kept track of the dates because I'm not going and it makes me crazy that I'm not. Anyway not helping with the crazy are the photos of Paul from the production that have been popping up this week -- I think the above one is the only one actually from the show in the proper costume while the three I have for you after the jump are from rehearsals, but they're all making so very jealous of anybody going...

Looks divine! Have we seen him play the bad guy before? It's difficult for me to imagine him conveying the predatory confidence I associate with the role (or at least with Brando's performance of it), but it sounds sexy!
What the hell kind of Streetcar is this? Satin pajamas?
I was lucky enough to see Gillian Anderson and Ben Foster in this a few years ago. It was one of the best things I've ever seen.
I saw the Gillian production three times, it blew my brains out the back of my head. I maintain hers is the best performance I've ever seen on the stage. I agree this looks different but I don't see anything wrong with trying new things, and from what I've seen this has gotten some good reviews
Satin pyjamas are the traditional costuming for that particular scene...
Isn't it satin PJ's for Brick in Cat? I don't recall ever seeing Stanley in any PJ's.
Stage directions clearly state that Stanley wears the same silk pajamas in this scene that he wore on his wedding night.
I completely agree-Stanley might wear satin pajamas but he would never wear that color. That costume designer should be fired.
