Swoonworthy looooves Joe Manganiello, so when we got the chance to see him live and in the flesh onstage, you better believe we grabbed that opportunity — with both hands! Our Pack Master is currently stalking the boards as Stanley Kowalski in the Tennessee Williams classic play “A Streetcar Named Desire” for the Yale Repertory Theatre. So, New Haven, Conn., here we come!
With his massive frame and overall manliness, Joe’s a perfect physical fit for the iconic role. As dazzled as we were by his physique in an early shirtless scene, we kept our composure long enough to note the guy can really act, too. Even if you’re not lucky enough to make it to New Haven, you can still see that for yourself — check out a video of him performing a ‘Streetcar’ scene below.
Let us note: As much as we love him, we are NOT the moron/s who kept snapping pictures during the play last week, forcing Joe to say something from the stage (and, later, on Twitter). We are not as uncivilized as that … but we’re not dead, either. All the photos we took of Joe in varying states of undress we took with our mind’s eye. And those are FOREVER, honey!
The production runs through Oct. 12. Buy tickets here: Yale Repertory Theatre
