True Blood’s Joe Manganiello is returning to his roots in the theater and will be screaming “Stella” as Stanley Kowalski, the part made famous by Marlon Brando, in a new production of “A Streetcar Names Desire.”
In an interview with Speakeasy, Joe revealed that he has accepted the role of Stanley Kowalski in Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire” at the Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, CT this fall.
“That’s where it really all started for me,” Manganiello said, referring to his background in classical theater.
This is not the first time Manganiello has played the role of Kowalski. He played the role at the West Virgina Public Theatre in 2008.
Joe answered fan questions with Speakeasy last Thursday, look for a video of his interview and the Q&A to be released soon.
