    You can take photos in the theatres? Don’t mean me wrong, I’m just surprised, because in Poland we mustn’t take photos or something.

    What’s the source for these performance photos? They look taken from the balcony and not official production photos.

    You all might want to see the film version of “Cat” with Elizabeth Taylor as Maggie and Paul Newman as Brick. There was passion and grief, and great acting. IMO Scarlett Johannson doesn’t have the maturity or acting chops to play Maggie.

    @Susie#1: Agreed. Liz Taylor was sultry and on fire. Johannsen doesn’t have the depth to do this role. Plus, she doesn’t look nearly as good in that slip as Taylor did.

    Liz Taylor looked hot in her slip. Scarletts’ version does nothing for her..

    just curious – what on earth happened to her chest? Didn’t she used to be known for that? Where did it go? It’s like she loses weight in her bra before any other part of her body.

    She is no Liz Taylor. That’s all.

    Idiots,

    She is not trying to be Taylor. She is trying to be Maggie the Cat. She is doing her own interpretation of the character.

    Meh, Scarlett may not be an incredible actress, but Liz Taylor doesn’t impress me either. If her life were on blast with the internet today, she’d be as trashy as them all, except she might conduct herself better in interviews.

    Walked out after the 2nd act, with others. This is a passionate play, but this cast and director took the passion out of it. It was FLAT. Scarlett tried hard, but Benjamin gave her nothing to work with. When we got home we watched the Paul Newman/Burl Ives/Elizabeth Taylor movie and it was great. Last time we saw this on Broadway was the Ned Beaty as Big Daddy version and that was very good. Hopefully they will fix this before opening night…if they can.

    Scarlett may not be Liz Taylor in this stage production but at least this is the play that Tennesee Williams wrote and not the incohent mess that was brought to the screen in the 1958 film version. It makes far more sense and now we understand why Brick behaves the way he does toward Maggie. He would have had to have “sexual issues” to ignore either Liz or Scarlett as he bathes in his alcohol addiction. Simply a great play.

    Was there that night. She signed my playbill. But I have to agree with Mike B, the play and all of the performances (except for Emily Bergl) were flat and dull.
