About This Show

Debbie Allen directs an African- American production of Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

Hypocrisy, greed, and secret passions threaten to tear apart a wealthy but dysfunctional Mississippi family in Williams’ stunning American masterpiece. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof searingly portrays the larger-than-life characters of Maggie “the Cat,” her alcoholic husband, Brick, and the dominating family patriarch, Big Daddy.

Boris Kodjoe will take over the role of Brick from Terrence Howard from April 15 to May 22.
