Black "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" Set For Great White Way

By Holly Wood and Alan Smithee

Not only does Elizabeth Taylor have a Black boyfriend, Jason Winters, now her best movie, "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" is going Black too. Except this time it will be on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre. Terrence Howard will play Paul Newman's Brick and James Earl Jones will play Big Daddy. Either Kerry Washington or Anika Noni Rose will play Maggie the Cat, which was played by Taylor in the 1958 film.

Negroes have come a long way since then. Or maybe it would be better to say that American society has come a long way since the 1950s. Negroes have always been more than ready to participate. It was and is illogical to keep us out. Such irrational behavior permeates American society though. It is a sickness. Thankfully, the patient seems to be recovering some from this spiritual disease. Let's just still go our separate ways after dark. Or at least after the play is over, which opens in March 2008. (Source: Gatecrasher@nydailynews.com)
