"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"


Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Tennessee Williams

Rob August & Allison F. Rich
What is it about sixty-plus-year-old this play about one family’s secrets, doubts, deceptions, lies, greed, unmet sexual desires, and mores still reflecting the Deep South’s century-old defeat that makes it one of the American stage’s favorites?  The Stage presents a stellar cast and a spell-bounding production that can takes its place proudly alongside the great stage and film versions of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof – a San Jose production that is as physically demanding, emotionally exhausting, and achingly eye-popping as any I personally have ever seen.

For my full review of this outstanding production, please proceed to Talkin' Broadway: https://www.talkinbroadway.com/page/regional/sanjose/sj154.html.


Rating: 5 E

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof continues through March 3, 2019, at The Stage, 490 First Street, San Jose.  Tickets are available at www.thestage.org.
