Lawsuit Named Desire

The University of the South, which owns the intellectual property rights for [Tennessee] Williams’s “Streetcar Named Desire,” has threatened legal action to stop performances of the one-man show “Blanche Survives Katrina in a FEMA Trailer Named Desire,” which is scheduled to run through March 15 at SoHo Playhouse.

“I don’t think Tennessee Williams would approve of anything they’re doing in the name of protecting his work, not one bit,” Mr. Rosenthal said. “He was one starving artist, and I don’t think he’d do anything to hurt other starving artists.”
