Trista Moldovan as Maggie, Michael Ellison as Brick, Joe Vincent as Big Daddy and Kathleen Doyle as Big Mama.


'CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF'
8 p.m., Arkansas Repertory Theatre. $20-$35.

Brick! The Cat! Big Daddy! They sweat! They drink! They lie and bicker! It's Tennessee Williams' best-known work and possibly the most famous contribution the South ever made to theater. And yes, it's deserving of an egregious amount of exclamation marks! Is there a plot? Of course! But it all hinges on the aforementioned sweating, drinking and lying. And, brother, there's a whole lot of each. If you frequent thea-ter, you'll know The Rep's production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” is a must-see. If you shy away from the stage, this is a great opportunity to not only take a chance on one of the great American plays but also to add the word “mendacity” to your vocab. The drama runs through Feb. 21.
