The newly renovated Virginia Stage Company opened their production of "A Streetcar Named Desire" on January 17; the play runs through February 5. Today we'll talk with the lead actors of the show about VSC's artistic spin and the challenge of doing a Hollywood classic justice when adapting it from the screen to the stage. And later, we're considering how the immigration ban is impacting international students studying locally.
