Looks like he caught the streetcar

The young Mr. Aldredge had little interest in theater, but wanted to see the inside of a grand Broadway house. He asked the stagehands -- for stagehands they must surely be -- for a peek.

“Buy a ticket,” one replied, and he did, for $1.80.

From his seat, Mr. Aldredge watched as the “stagehands” -- Karl Malden and Marlon Brando -- walked out under the lights to play “A Streetcar Named Desire,” and after that he was never completely the same.
