Wikipedia article of the day for October 1, 2016

The Wikipedia article of the day for October 1, 2016 is A Streetcar Named Marge.
"A Streetcar Named Marge" is the second episode of The Simpsons' fourth season. It first aired on the Fox network in the United States on October 1, 1992. In the episode, Marge wins the role of Blanche DuBois in a musical version of Tennessee Williams' play A Streetcar Named Desire. Homer offers little support for his wife's acting pursuits, and Marge begins to see parallels between him and Stanley Kowalski, the play's boorish lead male character. The episode contains a subplot in which Maggie attempts to retrieve her pacifier from a strict daycare owner. Jeff Martin wrote the episode, and Rich Moore served as director. Jon Lovitz made his fourth guest appearance on The Simpsons, this time as musical director Llewellyn Sinclair, as well as Llewellyn's sister, who runs the daycare. The episode generated controversy with an unflattering original song about New Orleans; one newspaper published the lyrics before the episode aired, and the president of Fox Broadcasting issued a public apology. The episode was well received by many fans, and show creator Matt Groening has named it one of his favorite episodes.
