Cate Blanchett as Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire

“That performance was as naked, as raw and extraordinary and astonishing and surprising and scary as anything I’ve ever seen, and it didn’t have anything to do with what clothes she took off, you know what I mean?

She took the layers of a person and just peeled them away.

I thought I’d seen that play, I thought I knew all the lines by heart, because I’ve seen it so many times, but I’d never seen the play until I saw that performance.”

- Meryl Streep
