    "Terrible Quality"
    What would have made A Streetcar Named Desire (Dramatized) better?

    Better quality. You can hardly hear the characters speaking, the background noises drown everything out.

    "Excellent"

    Great performance of an excellent play. A lot of heavy themes including empowerment (or lack thereof) of women, the need for illusions under duress, the consequences of insensitivity and lack of patience on a vulnerable person, and on and on...Highly recommended.

    "Amazing Performance!!"

    The actors are ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!! And the special effects, ambiance, & background noises had me hooked from start to finish!! I only wish there was a visual transcript because I was trying to follow along in my play script and there were lots of adlibs and improvisation so it was hard to follow along.

    "Lots of background noise"

    The background noise is very distracting and overpowers a lot of the speaking which makes it difficult to focus on the storyline vs what's happening in the background
