Johansson for Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

Scarlett Johansson will be treading the boards on Broadway

Scarlett Johansson will tap into her feline side later this year when she plays Maggie the Cat on Broadway.

Producers have announced the Tony Award-winning actress will star in a revival of Tennessee Williams's Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. It will be Scarlett's first time back on Broadway since winning a Tony in the Arthur Miller play A View From A Bridge opposite Liev Schreiber in 2010.

Benjamin Walker, who starred in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, will play her husband, and Debra Monk will be Big Mama.

The new Cat On A Hot Tin Roof will begin previews at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on December 18 and open on January 17. It marks the play's fifth revival on Broadway.
