Benedict Andrews directed the West End revival that opened July 24 at London’s Apollo Theatre. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof ended its engagement October 7.
Take a first look at the trailer for the live broadcast above.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof will be screened in 2,500 venues across 60 countries.
London’s Young Vic Theatre and NTLive join forces for the broadcast of the production that also features Colm Meaney (Big Daddy), Lisa Palfrey (Big Mama), Hayley Squires (Mae), Brian Gleeson (Gooper), Richard Hansel (Doctor), and Michael J. Shannon (Reverend).
Unlike the November 16 presentation of Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman’s Follies, which is being broadcast live from London, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was previously filmed for broadcast in front of a live audience at the Apollo Theatre.

The production featured scenic design by Magda Willi with costumes by Alice Babidge, lighting by Jon Clark, music by Jed Kurzel, and sound design by Gareth Fry.
The play, written by Tennessee Williams, is set in Mississippi on a steamy night where a family gathers to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. As stated in press notes, “The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real—and which will win out?”
NTLive was founded in 2009, and screenings have reached over 7 million people in 60 countries. For more information about the upcoming screening, click here.
