The Ticket Liquidator Lowdown
  • Ticket Liquidator is a resale marketplace, not a ticket seller. Prices are set by third-party sellers and may be above or below face value.

    close

    Ticket Liquidator is a nationwide network through which professional companies and trusted individuals resell tickets to events. This means that we don't charge your card, nor do we own, price, or ship the tickets listed for sale on our marketplace. The tickets are owned instead by hundreds of sellers who re-price their tickets based on the popularity of the event and the number of tickets available.
  • All seats are together unless stated otherwise.

    close

    We understand that people often attend events with friends or family and want to be located near the ones they love. Therefore, although seat numbers are not listed, we guarantee that tickets purchased through Ticket Liquidator will be together unless explicitly stated otherwise (e.g. the seller advertises the tickets as being "piggybacked" or "split") or the tickets are General Admission.
  • Tickets are not guaranteed to ship immediately.

    close

    The sellers who list tickets on our marketplace access tickets from a variety of sources - venues, fan clubs, event promoters, industry insiders, and even other ticket resellers. Some sellers may have to wait to receive tickets from their supplier due to ticket printing or distribution delays. Please note, though, that delayed delivery does not change the fact that you are guaranteed to receive your tickets by the date of the event once your order is accepted by the seller. Sellers also do their best to advertise expected delivery delays on their listings in order to help you make an informed purchase decision.
  • All sales are final.

    close

    Tickets are time-sensitive items. Prices rise and fall over time and their value expires following the event date. This means that sellers would be taking a risk by allowing customers to return tickets that might never be resold or otherwise resold for the same value as what you paid. The ticketing industry has therefore adopted an “all sales are final” policy that disallows ticket return. If, however, you find yourself unable or unwilling to use your tickets, you can always check out our consumer seller program.

A Streetcar Named Desire Information

About the Show:

One of the greatest works of American drama, A Streetcar Named Desire is widely considered to be a revolutionary play. At the time it was written and first performed, the dramatic tradition of melodrama was beginning to wane in favor of dramatic naturalism. The culture clash between the histrionics of Blanche, a fading relic of a noble, Southern tradition, and the gritty realism of Stanley, a hard, modern rebel, represents a fundamental change in the face of American theatre. Streetcar opened on Broadway on December 3, 1947, and was enthusiastically received by critics and audiences alike. It ran for over two years, until December 17, 1949, and received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948.

Some of the greatest actors of our time have placed their stamp on the iconic characters in this play. The original Broadway cast included the great Marlon Brando (Julius Caesar, The Godfather) and a then-unknown Jessica Tandy (Fried Green Tomatoes, Driving Miss Daisy). The 1949 London production was directed by the eminent Laurence Olivier. To date, the list of actors to portray these memorable characters includes: Tallulah Bankhead, Rosemary Harris, Blythe Danner, Aidan Quinn, Frances McDormand, Alec Baldwin, Jessica Lange, Natasha Richardson, John C. Reilly, Cate Blanchett, and Rachel Weisz. Actors often jump at the chance to tackle the great characters that define this play. Get your A Streetcar Named Desire tickets today to see why.

Plot Synopsis:

Fading Southern belle Blanche DuBois arrives at the New Orleans home of her sister, Stella Kowalski, with a large trunk, indicating that she plans to stay a while despite their less-than-close relationship. Blanche tells Stella that she has lost their ancestral home in Laurel Mississippi after the deaths of their last remaining relatives and that she has been given a leave of absence from her teaching job because of her weak nerves. Her instant distaste with the working-class neighborhood earns her the disfavor of Stella's husband, Stanley, who distrusts her and soon discovers the extent of her financial hardship as well as her severe alcoholism.

Soon, Blanche discovers that Stanley is abusive to Stella, but she remains in love with him despite and because of their tempestuous dynamic and animal attraction to one another. When Blanche tries to convince Stella to leave Stanley for a man of higher social standing, Stanley threatens her with hints that he has heard shameful secrets of her past. Blanche confides in a suitor, Mitch, that years ago, her young husband committed suicide when she discovered his homosexual affairs. He tells her of a lost love in his past and they grow closer.

A month later, on the afternoon of Blanche's birthday, Stanley informs Blanche that he has discovered the secrets in her past: after losing her home, she moved into a rundown motel where she had numerous sexual encounters, for which she was eventually evicted, and she was fired from her teaching job for having an affair with a student. Blanche is horrified to hear that Stanley has also told Mitch her secrets. She sinks into an alcohol-fueled depression and laments that her relationship with Mitch is over.

When Stella is in the hospital following the birth of her and Stanley's baby, Stanley comes home to find Blanche drunk and insisting that a rich former suitor is coming for her. He knows she is imagining the whole thing but offers to celebrate their good fortune anyway. When Blanche cruelly spurns him and becomes violent, he overpowers her and eventually rapes her. Weeks later, Blanche has clearly lost her grip on reality. Believing she is going to meet her suitor, she is taken by a doctor to the insane asylum as Stella and Mitch look on in sadness.
