All black cast of ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ to debut on Broadway

leave a comment »

March 2008 will see Terrence Howard (“Crash”, “Best Man”) lead an all African-American cast of Tennesee Williams’ ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’. The cast will also include Phylicia Rashad (“Cosby Show” and recently Broadway’s “A Raisin in the Sun”); Anika Noni Rose (“Dreamgirls”) and James Earl Jones; the play will be directed by Debbie Allen.

Though the play has been on Broadway four times, this is the first African-American production approved by Williams’ estate for the Broadway stage.
