Beyonce is apparently in talks to play Maggie the Cat in a new Broadway revival of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." The revival was originally supposed to begin performances later this year, but it's been pushed back to accommodate her schedule. The all African-American production will be directed by Debbie Allen. Oh shit, loved her ass in "A Different World."
In addition to Beyonce, Danny Glover is in talks to play Big Daddy, Phylicia Rashad is in talks to play Big Momma and LL Cool J is pretty much set as Brick.
Broadway star Audra McDonald had agreed to play Maggie, but apprently producers wanted a bigger name. Audra said, "I think Beyoncé's an incredibly beautiful, talented singer. But the stage is a very difficult beast . . . a lot of people don't understand how difficult it is not just to do it right once, but do it right eight times a week and keep it up."
Elizabeth Taylor was nominated for her an Oscar for the film version of the Tennessee Williams play.
Can you imagine this shit?! I would be front and center, because you know this is going to be some campy shit. Beyonce as Maggie the cat?!!! Death to the theater!
