Adrian Lester Joins Phylicia Rashad and James Earl Jones in West End 'CAT' 12/1
James Earl Jones and Phylicia Rashad are set to reprise their recent Broadway roles of Big Daddy and Big Mama in the West End production of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Debbie Allen will once again direct and acclaimed UK actor Adrian Lester will play the role of Brick.
The production will begin performances December 1st at a theater yet to be announced.
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF began its journey at the Broadhurst Theatre on February 12, 2008 and opened the following month on March 8 ending its run on June 22. It was directed by Debbie Allen.
Hypocrisy, greed and secret passions threaten to tear apart a wealthy but dysfunctional Mississippi family in Tennessee 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 domineering family patriarch, Big Daddy.
