The latest Broadway revival of the Tennessee Williams masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof opens at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theater this evening. Following her Tony Award winning success in another dramatic classic, the recent revival of Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge, film actress Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers, Lost in Translation) now takes on the iconic role of Maggie the Cat, made famous on film by Elizabeth Taylor.
Playing opposite Scarlett Johansson is Benjamin Walker (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson on Broadway, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter on film) as Brick. The cast also features Irish actor Ciaran Hinds (The Seafarer), Debra Monk (set to star again on Broadway in the musical Pump Boys and Dinettes later this season), Emily Bergl, Michael Park, and Brian Reddy.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof began performances on December 18, 2012. The limited-run production, which is directed by Rob Ashford, is scheduled to play through March 30, 2013.
