Talk about the cat's meow: Terrence Howard is coming to Broadway, to star with Dreamgirls' Anika Noni Rose in a revival of Tennessee Williams' dramatic classic Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, a rep for the show tells PEOPLE.
The 1955 Tony-winning play was turned into a 1958 movie starring Paul Newman, as Brick, and Elizabeth Taylor, as Maggie the Cat – whose marriage to the alcoholic Brick, a former school football hero Down South, is crumbling.
The new production, set to open Feb. 12 at the Broadhurst Theatre, will also star James Earl Jones, as Big Daddy, and Phylicia Rashad, as Big Mama, and be directed by Rashad's sister, Debbie Allen.
