As I announced on Twitter and Facebook late last week, S&A will be giving away 2 tickets to a performance of the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by Emily Mann.
Previews began about 1 1/2 weeks ago, and having talked to a few people who've attended those early previews, reactions have been mostly positive on it; some concerns, but primarily kinks that should be worked out before the show's official opening this Sunday, April 22.
And now, assuming you win the pair of tickets, you'll be able experience the production in person, with a starring cast that includes Blair Underwood as Stanley, Nicole Ari Parker as Blanche, Daphne Rubin-Vega as Stella, and Wood Harris as Mitch.
The tickets you're competing for are for the Sunday, April 29, 3PM performance, so PLEASE make sure that you can attend that specific show before you enter the competition.
The seats will be in the higher up rows in the center Orchestra section.
What do you have to do to win the 2 tickets?
Easy enough; just answer this one question: Of all the black actors who have won Tony Awards for their performances on stage (hence, not for work done off stage, like producers; and also not "honorary") name those who have also won Academy Awards for their performances on film (again, for their performances in front of the camera, and also, non "honorary").
That should be clear enough; if not, feel free to ask. The list of black Tony Award winners is isn't very long, so, really, you should be able to figure this out relatively easily.
Email me your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject box, enter "Streetcar Giveaway".
You have until next week Wednesday, the 25th of April, at 11:59PM EST, to submit your entries. The day after, I'll randomly select a winner from all the correct responses, and that person will win the pair of tickets. So yes, there will be only 1 winner, not 2.
All good? Again, any questions, ask.
Lastly, I would GREATLY appreciate it if you don't post your responses in the comment section below.
Streetcar, produced by Stephen Byrd, occupies the Broadhurst Theater on 44th Street, and features an original jazz score composed by Terence Blanchard.
