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.

Don Jon’s Addiction, Scarlett’s upcoming movie, has changed its name and it’s now called Don Jon. There’s also a new still released of Scarlett playing Barbara Sugarman along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who also directs the film) that you can view it in our gallery, just click on the miniature.
Scarlett was a guest on the Jimmy Fallon show last night. I wasn’t able to find a video of the interview yet, since most videos have restricted access. I’ll keep you posted. I do have some stills of the show. Scarlett looked stunning!

Jon Martello is the quintessential modern-day lothario. He and his friends objectify women, rate them on a scale of one to ten and cruise clubs for chicks that they can bed and discard. Jon, in particular, is exceptionally good at wooing the ladies with his muscles, slick-backed hair and cocky charms. His life, as he tells us in voiceover, is all about his friends, the gym, his ride (a Camaro muscle car), his family, church (no, really), girls and pornography. Lots and lots of pornography. Jon is an inveterate and compulsive porn addict, so much so that it prevents him from having a substantial relationship with any female. Jon Martello, in case you missed it, is a total guido from New Jersey, complete with “Jersey Shore “accent.
Jon’s life is all about routine, as writer/director/star Joseph Gordon-Levitt shows us repeatedly like a comedic mantra clipped at a quick rate. Jon screams at retarded Sunday drivers behind the wheel, sweats it out at the gym, bangs all kinds of broads, goes home for family dinner every Sunday and then goes to church to confess his myriad transgressions over and over again. And, just like the bong of an iMac rebooting like a buzzer, he watches endless amounts of porn. But Jon’s life of pulling countless broads is quickly upended when he meets the ultimate “dime” (a ten), Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson), a princess guidette with a body built for sin, but the morals of a saint (at least by today’s standards).
Scarlett (dressed head to toe by Dolce & Gabbana) and her co-stars attended the ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’ opening night after party on January 17th at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Lots of celebrities attended the play, and though it got mixed reviews, all of them praised Scarlett’s performance, so well donde girl! Check out pics of the party in our gallery:
