Who’s That on the Roof? 

Maggie the Cat started life poor but married well. Or maybe she didn’t. Her husband, Brick, has just his football glories and his friendship with ol’ pal Skipper to keep him going – but his football days are long gone, and Skipper has killed himself. Now only booze comforts Brick. Brick also has a brother named Gooper who’s going all-out to usurp Brick’s position as favorite son. It sounds petty, but “favorite son” is actually a very lucrative role, because their father, Big Daddy, is loaded. Sadly, the family’s patriarch unknowingly faces his own imminent mortality, but he’s still running the show. And Big Daddy’s planned a big family dinner to celebrate what he mistakenly believes is his triumph over death, and also to bring his family together. Nothing ever goes wrong at a family gathering – especially when all involved are angling for any edge that will get them a larger share of Big Daddy’s vast estate. Muddy Waters Theatre Company presents Tennessee Williams’ Cat on A Hot Tin Roof at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (October 5 through 20), with additional performances on Sunday (October 7 and 14) and Thursday (October 18) at the Theatre at St. John’s (5000 Washington Place; 314-534-1111 or www.muddywaterstheatre.com). Tickets are $15 to $18.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays; Thu., Oct. 18. Starts: Oct. 5. Continues through Oct. 14, 2007
