There’s going to be a whole lotta crazy and a whole lotta steam on Broadway this spring thanks to the upcoming revival of Tennessee Williams’ New Orleans-set A Streetcar Named Desire. Daphne Rubin-Vega (above, in the peach nighty) will be suffering like hell as former rich girl Stella. Nicole Ari Parker (in the red kimono) will be vamping it up as her faded Southern belle sister, Blanche. Wood Harris will be sexually frustrated as Blanche’s patient paramour, Mitch.

And, of course, Blair Underwood (below, eating oranges) will get soaking wet and scream “Hey, Stella!” in his Broadway debut as Stanley.

We use the word “unite” loosely. “Just because they’re super heroes doesn’t mean they’re super friends,” says Renner. (For some exclusive, on-set pictures of The Avengers‘ superheroes, see our gallery here.)
