A spokesman for the show told Playbill On-Line the producers hope to continue the engagement through its announced March 14 end date.

Ashley Judd left the production on Feb. 22 in order to undergo foot surgery. She injured her foot during the Feb. 17 evening performance. The mishap caused her to miss several performances during the week ending Feb. 23. McAndrew acted in her stead.

McAndrew has acted Off-Broadway in Book of Days at the Signature Theatre Company. She has appeared at such regional house as George Street Playhouse, Arizona Theatre Company and Arena Stage.

Also heading the cast of Cat are Jason Patric as Maggie's willfully alcoholic, unresponsive husband Brick; and Ned Beatty as the blustery and blunt redneck millionaire Big Daddy.

The production additionally stars Margo Martindale as the cowed, but loving Big Mama; Michael Mastro as Brick's neglected brother, Gooper; and Amy Hohn as Gooper's baby-making, grasping wife Mae.

Previews began Oct. 9, 2003, under the direction of Anthony Page.
