Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard will take a previously arranged leave from Broadway’s current Cat on a Hot Tin Roof April 15-May 22, but actor-model Boris Kodjoe (yummy!) is waiting in the wings as tormented Brick.
Howard’s temporary exit is to fulfill contractual obligations for a movie job, a spokesman said. Howard rejoins the production May 23.
With this Feb. 21 announcement comes confirmation that tickets are on sale through June 15, which represents an extension of the “strictly limited run” (which was previously on sale to April 13). The staging is so high-profile that an extension announcement was expected.
