When Cate Blanchett takes a turn on the New York stage, it's a big deal. So big, that BAM had a gala in honor of Blanchett's star turn in A Streetcar Named Desire, which attracted the likes of Anne Hathaway, Alan Cumming, and Phillip Glass.-

The evening was fittingly themed "Belle Reve", with New Orleans/Streetcar themed tables such as "Dubois Table", "Elysian Fields Table", and "Vieux Carre Table". Guests enjoyed a cajun-inspired dinner on the stage of the BAM Opera House, followed by a performance of Sydney Theater Company's Streetcar Named Desire. After the performance, guests were invited to a dessert reception along with the illustrious fellow attendees!
