The Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’ 1955 family drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, starring Tony Award winner Scarlett Johansson and Benjamin Walker as a couple grappling with ghosts of the past and an uncertain future, ends its run March 30 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Tony Award winner Rob Ashford (Evita, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Finding Neverland) helmed the production, set within a sweltering upstairs bedroom of a sweeping Mississipi plantation, which began previews Dec. 18, 2012, and officially opened Jan. 17.
It ends its 15-week engagement, as scheduled, having played 34 previews and 84 regular performances. Representatives for the production did not respond to questions regarding whether the production had recouped its investment. Critics offered a mixed response to the revival.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played to 61.7 percent capacity for the week ending March 24, grossing $647,429.
