NEW YORK CITY - Tony Award® winner Scarlett Johansson (A View From the Bridge, Lost in Translation) returns to Broadway as "Maggie the Cat" in Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Ciarán Hinds ("Political Animals," There Will Be Blood), Benjamin Walker (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and Tony and Emmy® winner Debra Monk (Curtains, "Damages") co-star in Williams’ classic story about a wealthy Southern family and the passions and secrets that come close to destroying them.
On the eve of his 65th birthday, "Big Daddy" Pollitt, the richest cotton planter in the Mississippi Delta, is distressed by the rocky relationship between his beloved son Brick, an aging football hero who has turned to drink, and Brick’s beautiful and feisty wife Maggie. As the hot summer evening unfolds, the veneer of Southern gentility slips away revealing unpleasant truths as greed, lies and suppressed sexuality reach a boiling point.
Tony and Emmy winner Rob Ashford, fresh from his recent Olivier-winning West End production of Anna Christie, directs this stunning, must-see new production.
