Anika Noni Rose, Terrance Howard, Phylicia Rashaad, and James Earl Jones head an all Black cast to recreate Tennessee Williams’ classic tale of love, lust, and lost dreams. I won’t miss this,and neither should you. Debbie Allen directs.
In CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, a powerful Southern family gathers at a birthday celebration for patriarch Big Daddy (Jones), who does not know that he is dying of cancer. In a scramble to secure their part of his estate, family members hide the truth about his diagnosis from him and Big Mama (Rashad). Front and center as tensions mount are alcoholic former football hero Brick (Howard) and his beautiful but sexually frustrated wife Maggie “the Cat” (Rose); as their troubled relationship comes to a stormy and steamy climax, a shockwave of secrets are finally revealed.
