Tennessee Williams’ personal favorite play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, kicks off Austin Shakespeare’s season. Noted for its Southern sexy verve, the play will have a new staging. Gwendolyn Kelso returns as “Maggie the Cat." New to Austin Shakespeare is Zac Thomas as “Brick,” the husband who is succumbing to alcoholism as his wife tries to save him and their marriage. As his dynamic father, “Big Daddy,” Ev Lunning returns to the stage, with a new actor debuting with Austin Shakespeare, Elise Jacobs as “Big Mama.”
