★★★★ “Benedict Andrews’ stylish, bold production” | Reviews for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

The reviews are coming in for our West End production of Cat on the Hot Tin Roof at the Apollo

Sienna Miller stars as Maggie alongside Jack O’Connell as Brick and Colm Meaney as Big Daddy. A return to the stage for director Benedict Andrews following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Tennessee Williams’ searing, poetic story of a family’s fight for survival is a twentieth century masterpiece.
