    A Storm From the South, Brewing in a Bedroom

    Ben Brantley

    January 17, 2013: A four-alarm urgency infuses every breath that Scarlett Johansson takes in the oxygen-starved revival of Tennessee Williams’s “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” that opened on Thursday at the Richard Rodgers Theater.

    A noisy 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' distracts

    Mark Kennedy

    January 17, 2013: The creative team behind the Broadway revival of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" has apparently concluded that Tennessee Williams' script needed more fireworks. So they went ahead and added them.

    Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

    David Rooney

    January 17, 2013: Somebody spayed the cat. And it wasn’t the hard-working main attraction Scarlett Johansson, who plays Tennessee Williams’ tenacious feline title character in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The star and her similarly marooned fellow cast members are all at the mercy of Rob Ashford, a director out of his depth and reaching for any floatation device he can grab in this sinking Broadway revival, which manages to be both thunderously emphatic and curiously flat.

    Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

    Matt Windman

    January 17, 2013: Tennessee Williams' 1955 bedroom drama "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," one of the sexist, most riveting American plays ever written, keeps receiving starry but disappointing Broadway revivals.

    'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' on Broadway: Johansson's heat is only half the story

    Chris Jones

    January 17, 2013: As Tennessee Williams understood better than almost any other scribe who ever stared down a typewriter, anger and need are not the same thing. In a lousy marriage — such as the one between Margaret and Brick in Williams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" — the two get conflated, of course, as anyone who has screamed at a partner in frustration from some unmet desire well knows. But like most of Williams' struggling souls, Maggie isn't annoyed in the way one gets annoyed, say, when one's deal isn't honored or one's plane is overbooked. She and her handsome, athletic hubby are both trapped in a hot mess of pain, unable to mutually twist their bodies in a way that might bring at least one of them some relief.
