Mendacity hangs in the air through any production of Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Since it premiered on Broadway in 1955, it has been performed in Little Rock numerous times.
In 2010, the Arkansas Repertory Theatre presented this play in a languid, steaming production. Directed by Robert Hupp, the cast was led by Trista Moldovan, Michael Ellison, and Joe Vincent. Rep favorites Amy Tribbey and Jeff Bailey were in the cast as well as Kathleen Doyle, Brian Wallace, and Roger Jerome.
The design team included Mike Nichols (sets), Margaret A. McKowen (costumes), Matthew Webb (lighting), Jason Pruzin (sound) and Lynda J. Kwallek (props).
2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the first Pulitzer Prize for Drama being given. To pay tribute to 100 years of the Pulitzer for Drama, each day this month a different Little Rock production of a Pulitzer Prize winning play will be highlighted. Many of these titles have been produced numerous times. This look will veer from high school to national tours in an attempt to give a glimpse into Little Rock’s breadth and depth of theatrical history.
