EVENING STANDARD – Sienna Miller and Jack O’Connell will star in Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for a new production opening at the Apollo Theatre this July.
Directed by Benedict Andrews, it will be produced by the Young Vic, making it the theatre’s first production to debut in the West End. They have previously transferred a number of their shows to the West End, including The Scottsboro Boys and A View From A Bridge.
Miller, who has had a number of screen roles including The Edge of Love and Alfie, has appeared on stage a number of times already. She starred in Flare Path at the Royal Haymarket in 2011 as part of Terence Rattigan’s centenary celebrations, and has appeared in After Miss Julie on Broadway.
O’Connell, who was directed by Angelina Jolie in the film Unbroken and is known for starring in Skins, last appeared on stage last year for The Nap at Sheffield Crucible.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof runs at the Apollo Theatre from July 13 to October 7
