wellsprings of imagination and inner turmoil fueled Tennessee
Williams' life-long career in the theatre, and his creation of
such vivid yet fragile heroines? To coincide with this year's
Tennessee Williams Literary Festival,
ArtSpot Productions presents an
evocation/invocation of the life and career of New Orleans' favorite
playwright, inspired by and adapted from his memoirs, letters
To Flee, Flee This Sad
Hotel is conceived and performed by
Randels, one of New Orleans' premier theatre artists, directed
and features the live piano accompaniment of Tom McDermott
(another St. Louis Tom!) and a magical set by Jeff Becker.
In various settings from his life—apartments in New Orleans and
New York, the Barnes Hospital in St. Louis—Randels portrays Tennessee
Williams and two of his beloved heroines, Maggie the Cat and Blanche
Dubois, in this unique picture of America's greatest 20th century playwright.
Extracts from works by Tennessee
Williams presented through special arrangement with
