Scarlett Johansson is set to make her return to Broadway in an upcoming production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
Johansson’s previous Broadway endeavor in “A View From a Bridge,” an Arthur Miller classic, earned her a prestigious Tony Award. Her appearance as Catherine resulted in rave reviews, including one from New York Times critic Ben Brantley, in which he declared, “Ms. Johansson melts into her character so thoroughly that her nimbus of celebrity disappears.”
It will be exciting and interesting to see what Johansson brings to the table this time around. She’ll be playing Maggie the Cat, a role made famous onscreen by the legendary Elizabeth Taylor.
The play opens on January 17 with preview performances beginning December 18.
