Re: “Theatre Memphis Neuters Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

I was in the theatre on opening night, long a fan of Williams' play and Richard Brooks' 1958 film adaptation with Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives and Judith Anderson's malleable yet feisty Big Momma. The film adaptation probably shaped my experience with the stage performance more than I could control - Taylor, Ives and Newman cast a long shadow over any other actors performing those roles, at least for me. The mind candy of Tennessee Williams' words careening around in my head, however, was the real treat. I could listen to that play with my eyes closed and just savor the dialogue. I hope to get back before it closes to give Gabe Beutel-Gunn and Natalie Jones another listen. On opening night they sounded a bit too much like they were reciting lines rather than inhabiting Brick and Maggie. And hear Bill Baker deliver again the most memorable and anticipated line Big Daddy utters. Thanks Theatre Memphis for staging this play and thanks to all the actors for taking on the roles.
