History :: Now Playing :: Schedule :: Reviews


Tennessee Williams award-winning play comes to Broadway once again and brings with it a stellar cast! Cat on a Hot Tin Roof begins previews on February 12, 2008 at the Broadhurst Theatre with an official opening of March 6, 2008. Portraying the wealthy but dysfunctional Southern family is Academy Award nominee Terrance Howard and Tony award winners Anika Noni Rose, Phylicia Rashad and James Earl Jones. The production is being directed by Emmy award winner Debbie Allen and is also the first African American production approved by the Williams estate for the Broadway stage. This play is considered one of Williams’ best works along side A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie.

The play takes place over the course of one night when a family in crisis gathers to celebrate the birthday of the patriarch and business tycoon Big Daddy. Unbeknownst to Big Daddy he has been diagnosed with cancer and has been given less then a year to live. All of the relatives have gathered in hopes of trying to get on his good side and ultimately in his will. In a subplot the beautiful Maggie has managed to escape a childhood of poverty by marrying Big Daddy’s alcoholic son Brick. Maggie now finds herself trapped in an unfulfilling marriage. Can this family come away from the greed, unspoken passions and rivalries that fuel them? Or, will they be torn apart?

The original production appeared on Broadway in 1955 starring Barbara Bel Geddes, Ben Gazzara and Burl Ives. It went on to win both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. The play inspired a 1958 film starring Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor as the troubled lovers with Ives reprising the stage role of Big Daddy. The original production influenced several revivals in 1974, 1990 with Kathleen Turner and Charles Durning and in 2003 with Ashley Judd.

This time around the unforgettable characters are being brought to life by a dynamic cast that is sure to do this play justice. Making his Broadway debut is Terrence Howard who is probably best known for his film career which includes his Academy Award nominated role as Djay in the 2005 film Hustle and Flow. In the role of the discontented Maggie is Anika Noni Rose who won a Tony award for her role in 2004’s production of Caroline, or Change. She was also featured in the 2006 film Dreamgirls. Fresh off of her role as the evil Queen in Cymbeline Phylicia Rashad returns to the stage as Big Mama. She won a Tony award for her role as Lena in the 2004 production of A Raisin in the Sun but is probably best known for her portrayal of Clair Huxtable on the long-running sitcom The Cosby Show. In the role of Big Daddy is two-time Tony award winner James Earl Jones who was last seen on Broadway in the 2005 production of On Golden Pond. He has enjoyed a successful film career but is recognized for providing the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars trilogy.

This play is about misunderstandings, jealousy and never ending rivalries that threaten to tear an already troubled family apart. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is one of those rare classic plays that never seem to go out of style. The cast alone makes this a must have ticket. Don’t miss your chance to see a rare theatrical experience.
