Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in Broadway CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
Tennessee Williams' heart-wrenching drama examines the web of deceit holding a wealthy Southern family together while threatening to tear them apart. Over the course of one sultry Mississippi night, the characters' gentility disappears as accusations of greed, sexual desire, and dishonesty -- long repressed -- come to the fore. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play (Williams' self-proclaimed favorite) forces the audience and characters alike to determine what is truth, what is a lie, and which lies have become the truth.

The Tempest in Broadway THE TEMPEST
South Coast Repertory
Transformed onstage into a travelling tent show, this is The Tempest unlike anything you-or the Bard-ever envisioned! As the wizard Prospero plots revenge on the enemies who banished him, the exuberant epic takes on a new life-thanks to the music (haunting ballads by the inimitable Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan), the magic (by Teller, of the legendary Penn and Teller duo) and the movement (by Pilobolus, the dance troupe Newsday called "mind-blowing…wildly creative…and physically daring").
