From an e-mail from Connie Mahan, Communications Director, Triad Stage.
In light of the recent devastation from Hurricane Katrina to the city of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast area, Triad Stage will be collecting donations to assist hurricane victims throughout the run of its season opening production of Tennessee Williams A Streetcar Named Desire.
After each performance of Streetcar, a member of the cast will address the audience asking patrons to show their generosity in support of hurricane relief efforts. Members of the cast will then be in the lobby afterward to collect funds, which will be donated to the American Red Cross. Contributions may also be made at the Triad Stage Box Office during regular box office hours, 1:00 to 6:00pm, Tuesdays through Fridays
At Triad Stage we've been immersed in the culture and history of 1940s New Orleans for months preparing for this play, and are particularly moved to do what we can to help,, says Artistic Director Preston Lane
