The Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival, like the man it's named after, has become a beloved part of New Orleans culture.

Starting Wednesday, expect to see throngs of fans of the great playwright's works on the streets of the city.

The festival opens Wednesday and ends Sunday with, of course, the Stanley and Stella shouting contest.

One of the many theatrical events on the schedule is the one woman show, "Vivien," by CBS daytime drama star Judith Chapman, who joins the Eyewitness Morning News with more on the show, which is, of course, about the British actress who portrayed "Blanche Dubos" in the film version of "A Streetcar Named Desire."

The 28th Annual Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival kicks off Wednesday and goes through Sunday at locations all over the city. Ticket prices are $75 for a festival panel pass ($60 for students), $30 for a one-day pass, and theater and special events tickets range between $5 and $100 dollars, and finally walking tours are $25.
