Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Robert E. Johnson Theatre

1499 Olive Blvd
Murray, KY 42071

We are pleased to announce that Department of Theatre alumnus W. Earl Brown will portray the role of “Big Daddy” in the production. Mr. Brown has had a great Film and Television career with roles in the upcoming Sci-Fi production of Preacher, with other TV roles including Archer, True Detective, American Crime, Chicago Fire, Bates Motel, Longmire, American Horror Story, and CSI. His film credits include Black Mass, Wild, The Lone Ranger, There’s Something About Mary, and Scream. Critics have the following to say about Cat on a Hot Tin Roof: One of the most successful plays of our time. "…a play of tremendous dramatic impact…enormous theatrical power." —NY Post. "…Williams has fashioned his most compelling characters." —NY Journal-American. "This is a gripping and intensely moving play, a play that can hold its own with anything written in the post-O'Neill American theater…Brilliant scenes, scenes of sudden and lashing dramatic power, break open…There is, indeed, no one moment in the evening when the stinging accuracy of Mr. Williams' ear for human speech is not compellingly in evidence…Mr. Williams is the man of our time who comes closest to hurling the actual blood and bone of life onto the stage; he is also the man whose prose comes closest to being an incisive natural poetry." —NY Times. The story revolves around Brick and Maggie. They are childless and Big Daddy is dying. Who will get the large inheritance? Will it be Gooper and May and their “no neck Monsters” that they call children? Or will Maggie convince Brick to have a child together?
