As previously reported, returning from last year’s run is Matt from Rogatis, reprising his performance as Brick, who will be joined by Cobra Kai star Courtney Henggeler in her Off-Broadway and NYC stage debut as Maggie and Obie and Drama Desk Award winner Frederick Weller (Kill a mockingbird, Take Me Outside, In Plain View) as a grandpa.

Rounding out the company are newly announced Christine Copley as Mae, Adam Dodway as Gooper, Milton Elliott as Reverend Tooker, and Jim Kempner as Doc Baugh.

Joe Rosario is back at the helm, with scenic design by Matt Imhoff, lighting design by Christian Specht, direction by Jesse Meckl and sound design by Tomas Correa. Casting is by Ruth Stage, who produces with Tony winner Joseph Grano (Boys jerseyA Beautiful Noise‘s).

The recent run, which ended on August 14, 2022, was the first Off-Broadway revival of the play authorized by the Tennessee Williams estate. The Southern storm of a play about greed, deceit, self-delusion, sexual desire, repression, homophobia, sexism and the looming specter of death won the Pulitzer Prize in 1955. Ruth Stage’s interpretation is set in a Mississippi Delta estate of Big Daddy Pollitt, a wealthy cotton magnate. The play examines the relationships between members of Big Daddy’s highly dysfunctional family, primarily between his son Brick and Maggie the “cat”, Brick’s wife.

The production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
