Scarlett Johansson, Cat On A Hot Tin RoofScarlett Johansson Certainly Looks The Part As Maggie The Cat In 'Cat On A Hot Tin Roof'

One of the most famous plays of all time, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is set at the plantation home of a wealthy cotton tycoon Big Daddy Pollitt. Exploring themes of greed, superficiality, mendacity, sexual desire, repression and death, the play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955. Ciaran Hinds stars as Big Daddy, while the Tony Award winning actress Debra Monk plays Big Mama. Though best known for her roles in The Avengers and Lost in Translation, Johansson has a passion for the stage and won a Tony for her role in Arthur Miller's A View From The Bridge.

Scarlett Johansson Returns To Broadway In ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’


Scarlett Johansson Tennessee Williams Arthur Miller Ciaran Hinds Debra Monk Woody Allen

Scarlett Johansson will grace Broadway once more, as she plays Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, reports The New York Daily News.

Tennessee Williams’ award winning play, which has won the Pulitzer Prize, and has been revived several times on Broadway already, will set the scene for Johansson’s return to the stage; her first since her Tony-winning performance in a 2010 revival of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge. Benjamin Walker will join her on stage. The actors will play Maggie and Brick in a new production that is expected to open Jan. 17 at New York's Richard Rodgers Theatre. Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones) will play Brick’s plantation-owner father, Big Daddy. Tony winner Debra Monk will play Big Mama.

The show’s lead producer will be Stuart Thompson, and Johansson, who worked with him on “View From the Bridge,” has wanted to play Maggie for some time, and her box office star power proved strong enough for the Broadway producers to bring back a play that is already familiar to many theatre-goers. It’s hard to pigeonhole Johansson as an actress, given the range of roles she’s fulfilled. More art-house performances, notably with Woody Allen, include; Match Point, Scoop and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, but she has also featured in many Hollywood blockbusters, like Iron Man 2 or The Avengers.

Center Stage Review


Weak
At the American Ballet Academy, there is an abundance of passion, talent and determination. Of course these things simply aren't enough when it comes to making it as a professional ballet dancer.

As the camera probes into a crowded room of ballerinas spinning and dipping, a young blond is immediately isolated from the bunch. The male choreographer's assistant notes that the girl has poor form. The choreographer retorts, "Who cares, look at her." And with that the blonde, blue-eyed Jodie is given a spot in the American Ballet Academy, the Julliard of dancing.
