Taking a break from her silver screen pursuits, Scarlett Johansson is gearing up for a starring role in the Broadway revival of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

The “In Good Company” star scored the role of Maggie opposite Ciaran Hinds, who has been cast as Big Daddy, Benjamin Walker as Brick, and Debra Monk as Big Mama.

“Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” is slated to begin preview performances just before Christmas, on December 18th, with the opening night scheduled for January 17th, 2013 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in the Manhattan Theater District.

Scarlett is no stranger to Broadway, as she previously won a Tony Award for her performance in Arthur Miller’s “A View From The Bridge.”
