You used to love it when your mother read you bedtime stories every night, but that had to stop once you got to be 45 years old! Take in some grownup stories like you were worming your way back onto ol’ mom’s lap with today’s Nopuorg—it’s $15 for two tickets and after-show cast soiree to see “A Streetcar Called Desire” from Just Act! Community Theatre at the Glen Ridge Office Park Amphitheatre (GROPA; turn left after Rydge Glenne Condo Villa).
Everybody knows this classic romance—aka “slept through it in English class”!—but when you see these first-time actors take the stage, you’ll feel like you never heard of it before. We’re talkin’ accents and a surprising number of props. After the cast goes back behind the fountain, you get to meet them for an autograph, some punch, and see if Blanche Kowalski is really as beautiful as everyone says (we won’t tell). It all just goes to prove you don’t need to go all the way to NYC for a little culture, because we hear you’ll probably get mugged there anyway. Don’t say your mother and Nopuorg never told you!
