Lathan To Purr In “Cat”

lathan_sanaa2Sanaa Lathan (pictured) will round out the London cast of the all-black production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” bowing on the West End in the fall. (I was hoping for Halle Berry, but shocking to say she’s too old for the role now.) Lathan (“A Raisin in the Sun”) will play central character Maggie the Cat in the Tennessee Williams drama, joining James Earl Jones and Phylicia Rashad — who both appeared in the 2008 Broadway incarnation — and latest addition Adrian Lester. (Role of Maggie was played by Anika Noni Rose on the Rialto.)
