VIDEO: Watch an All New Promo Video For CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF at Music Theater of Connecticut

Andrea Lynn Green (The Home Place) and Michael Raver (Death Comes For The War Poets) star in Music Theatre of Connecticut MainStage's stunning and intimate production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, directed by Artistic Director Kevin Connors.

The reviews are in! Check out the promo video below!

"Hate crimes are spiking, hate groups are now being encouraged," says Connors. "It's all very frightening. CAT certainly demonstrates how damaging a homophobic societal view can fatally impact a gay man or woman struggling with identity, and the destructive power of even the most passive hate. In this current climate, people need to be reminded of that."

The cast also includes Frank Mastrone as Big Daddy and Cindy Hannah as Big Mamma. Rob Mobley will take up the role of Gooper, Elizabeth Donnelly will play the role of Mae, the Preacher will be played by Jim Schilling, Jeff Gurner will appear as Doc Baugh.

In a plantation house, a family celebrates the sixty-fifth birthday of Big Daddy, as they sentimentally dub him. The mood is somber, despite the festivities, because a number of evils poison the gaiety: greed, sins of the past and desperate, clawing hopes for the future spar with one another as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds. Maggie, Big Daddy's daughter-in-law, wants to give him the news that she's finally become pregnant by Big Daddy's favorite son, Brick, but Brick won't cooperate in Maggie's plans and prefers to stay in a mild alcoholic haze the entire length of his visit. Swarming around Maggie and Brick are their intrusive, conniving relatives, all eager to see Maggie put in her place and Brick tumbled from his position of most-beloved son. By evening's end, Maggie's ingenuity, fortitude and passion will set things right, and Brick's love for his father, never before expressed, will retrieve him from his path of destruction and return him, helplessly, to Maggie's loving arms.
