PLAY: A Streetcar Named Desire – 8pm; Central New York Playhouse, 3649 Erie Blvd. E. (Shoppingtown Mall).

earthy and ex- tremely “normal” young husband of the latter. This leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness. Price: Dinner and Show $34.95; Show only $20. Dinner begins at 6:30pm. Info: or (315)885-8960
