Ruth Stage's off-Broadway production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, returning to the Theatre at St. Clement's following its summer 2022 run, has announced that Courtney Henggeler will star as Maggie the "Cat" for its encore engagement. Directed by Joe Rosario, performances will run from February 24-March 31, 2023, with an official opening on March 5.

Henggeler is best known for her role as Amanda LaRusso in the Netflix series Cobra Kai. She makes her New York City stage debut opposite Matt de Rogatis, who reprises his performance as Brick. Further casting will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tennessee Williams's sultry, southern storm of a play about greed, deceit, self-delusion, sexual desire and repression, homophobia, sexism, and the looming specter of death won the Pulitzer Prize in 1955. Ruth Stage's modern and haunting interpretation is set in an estate in the Mississippi Delta of Big Daddy Pollitt, a wealthy cotton tycoon. The play examines the relationships among members of Big Daddy's highly dysfunctional family, primarily between his son Brick and Maggie the "Cat," Brick's wife.
