Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

2hr. 45min. (2 intermission)


In Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, "Big Daddy" Pollitt (Ciarán Hinds), the richest cotton planter in the Mississippi Delta, is about to celebrate his 65th birthday. He is distressed by the rocky relationship between his beloved son Brick (Benjamin Walker), an aging football hero who has turned to drink, and his beautiful and feisty wife Maggie (Scarlett Johansson). As the hot summer evening unfolds, the veneer of Southern gentility slips away as unpleasant truths emerge and greed, lies and suppressed sexuality reach a boiling point. Student tickets will be $32 (including facility fee), only with valid ID, two tickets maximum on the day of performance. Tickets must be purchased in person at the Richard Rodgers Theatre box office starting two hours before the performance. Tickets are based on availability.
