Baltimore Center Stage Announces Cast and Creative for CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
Baltimore Center Stage is pleased to announce the cast and artistic team for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof directed by Judith Ivey. The sultry American classic opens Baltimore Center Stage's 56th season.
This enduring American tale by Tennessee Williams encapsulates high drama through a story of family ties and layers of lies on a collision course during one simmering Southern summer night. Themes of morality, greed, and desire play across the stage in this explosive drama about what can happen when illusions begin to unravel. Uncertainty, secrets, and maybe even love, are all on the line to be exposed. With gripping portrayals, original composition and stunning scenery, the production marks the debut of this Pulitzer Prize winning play at Baltimore Center Stage.
"We are thrilled to finally be bringing this revered classic to our stage with the extraordinary cast and design team assembled by director and Tennessee Williams aficionado Judith Ivey," said Michael Ross, Baltimore Center Stage Executive Director.
The cast includes Charlotte Booker* (Big Mama), Rod Brogan* (Gooper), Nina Brothers* (Dixie), Paul DeBoy* (Reverend Tooker), Stephanie Gibson* (Maggie), Alexis Hyatt* (Mae), Jim Ireland* (Doc Baugh), Leonardo Manni (Buster), Cynthia Miller (Sookey), Andrew Pastides* (Brick), David Schramm* (Big Daddy), and Jack St. Pierre (Sonny).
The artistic team is led by Tony-award winning actress/director Judith Ivey, and includes Adam Koch (Scenic Designer), Joseph Aulisi (Costume Designer), John Ambrosone (Lighting Designer), Victoria Deiorio (Sound Designer), and Kendall Simpson (Music), Gavin Witt
(Production Dramaturg), Pat McCorkle (Casting Director) and Bailey Bass (Assistant Director) and Erin Edelstein (Assistant Stage Manager). Baltimore Center Stage is also pleased to announce that Danielle Dee Daniels-Koster has joined the staff as Resident Stage Manager.
