This time on the podcast, a story about the recent Broadway production of Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire," which featured black and Latino actors in the lead roles. The show has closed on Broadway, but is heading soon to London's West End. The story includes commentary by the show's director Emily Mann, philosopher Cornel West, and others. As always, listen to the podcast on the player above, or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes here.
