VIEUX CARRé NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: February 2, 2011
Did He Like It?*
Like Williams' first big success The Glass Menagerie, Vieux Carré (1977) is a "memory play," set in the boarding house in New Orleans where Williams himself stayed as a young man during the Depression. The young writer, as narrator, remembers his artistic and sexual awakening there. Inhabitants of the house swirl up out of the writer's mind as archetypal Williams characters, longing for release and haunted by thwarted dreams. In The Wooster Group's version of Vieux Carré, the Group experiments with new modes of expression for Williams' lyric voice.
The Boarders Put the Polish on Eccentric

"Last seen in sober work attire, with his nose buried in a book for about six hours, the protean actor Scott Shepherd appears in far more garish guises in the Wooster Group’s restless but surprisingly reverent production of “Vieux Carré,” a little-seen Tennessee Williams play in which the writer exhumes a macabre assortment of lonely ghosts from his youthful, desperate days in New Orleans in the late 1930s."
