Scarlett Johansson Returns To Broadway In ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’


Scarlett Johansson Tennessee Williams Arthur Miller Ciaran Hinds Debra Monk Woody Allen

Scarlett Johansson will grace Broadway once more, as she plays Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, reports The New York Daily News.

Tennessee Williams’ award winning play, which has won the Pulitzer Prize, and has been revived several times on Broadway already, will set the scene for Johansson’s return to the stage; her first since her Tony-winning performance in a 2010 revival of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge. Benjamin Walker will join her on stage. The actors will play Maggie and Brick in a new production that is expected to open Jan. 17 at New York's Richard Rodgers Theatre. Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones) will play Brick’s plantation-owner father, Big Daddy. Tony winner Debra Monk will play Big Mama.

The show’s lead producer will be Stuart Thompson, and Johansson, who worked with him on “View From the Bridge,” has wanted to play Maggie for some time, and her box office star power proved strong enough for the Broadway producers to bring back a play that is already familiar to many theatre-goers. It’s hard to pigeonhole Johansson as an actress, given the range of roles she’s fulfilled. More art-house performances, notably with Woody Allen, include; Match Point, Scoop and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, but she has also featured in many Hollywood blockbusters, like Iron Man 2 or The Avengers.
