The San Pedro Playhouse has made a change to its spring lineup.
“A Streetcar Named Desire,” slated to open in March, has been pulled from the schedule. The show was to be directed by Carol Lee Klose, who had cast Sam Gilliam, Rick Frederick and Susanna Morrow in the leads.
In a statement, Artistic Director Frank Latson explained that “The move comes in the interest of continued economic growth and a move closer to family friendly programming in its Russell Hill Rogers Theater.
“Replacing Streetcar was a very difficult decision, particularly with the stellar Director and Cast which had been assembled for it. However, the Playhouse is at a crossroads, and many tough choices are being made in order that we enter our second century with a strong and steady foundation.”
In its place, the theater will stage “My Fair Lady,” which Latson is planning to direct.
