Cate Injured in ‘Streetcar’ Performance

Various websites are reporting that Cate has been injured during a live performance of A Streetcar Named Desire. Apparently Cate was accidentally struck on the head by a prop radio held by Mr. Edgerton. If this turns out to be true, I hope Cate makes a speedy recovery, my thoughts are with her.

Arts Beat– An Australian production of the Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire” turned more physical that expected for its star, Cate Blanchett, who was injured by a stage prop during a performance Wednesday night, Agence France-Presse reported.

“Object of a new desire”

The Sydney Morning Herald have posted a new article about Cate’s upcoming play, A Streetcar Named Desire. The article also contained a picture which has been added to the gallery.

“Robyn had mentioned years ago that she had the rights when we were talking about doing Hedda Gabler and I thought, ‘Oooh, no,’ ” says Blanchett. “And then I met Liv in London – and I’d been desperate to work with her – and we were talking about various projects for quite some time and then Andrew [Upton, co-artistic director at the STC] brought up Streetcar. Suddenly the temperature in the room changed.”

The Shipping News DVD Captures

DVD screen captures of Cate’s role as Petal in The Shipping News (2001) have been added to the gallery. Really not one of my favorite films, but Petal was quite a different type of character for Cate to portray, I love that she’s so versatile and can tackle any type of role.
