According to Britain’s Hello magazine, Britney Spears is being seriously considered for the role of Blanche DuBois in a stage production. The report says: “In what sounds like a perfect role for the girl from Louisiana, Britney is believed to have been offered the role of Southern belle Blanche DuBois in a new production of ‘A Streetcar Named Desire.’ An unnamed source revealed that Britney’s acclaimed performance on a TV sitcom led to the chance for her to tread the boards. ‘She had poise, timing and real flair,’ they said. British hard men Ray Winstone and Jason Statham are understood to be among the actors in line to play Blanche’s brother-in-law, Stanley Kowlaski (sic), originally played by acting legend Marlon Brando.” Let’s not speculate about what the ghost of Tennessee Williams would say about this. What would the greatest Blanche in modern times say about the travesty? I’m talking, of course, about Marge Simpson.
