Movie star Scarlett Johansson made a very successful Broadway debut in 2010, so successful that she won a Tony Award for her work in Arthur Miller’s “A View from the Bridge.” Three years later, she’s back on Broadway in a much more substantive role as Margaret, or “Maggie the Cat” (as the character is more often referred to), in Tennessee Williams' “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

This Rob Ashford-directed production is the third revival in a decade of “Cat,” and its competition also includes the very well-known 1958 movie version. New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood lets us know if the latest Broadway “Cat” is hot, or not.
