Introducing Maggie: Scarlett Johansson’s comeback to Broadway as the dissatisfied seductress in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was recently immortalized in a smoldering black-and-white promotional image.
The 28-year-old actress in the photograph exudes a seductive allure, reminiscent of a perfume advertisement. Her pose is moody as she reclines with her lips slightly parted. Her fingers loosen the plunging neckline of her elegant white slip, enhancing her sultry image.
Maggie’s strong-willed personality, grounded in practicality, has been brought to life by a number of notable actresses. Elizabeth Taylor, Jessica Lange, Kathleen Turner, Ashley Judd, and Anika Noni Rose are just a few examples of stars who have taken on this iconic role.
In my opinion, Maggie’s sexuality is sometimes exaggerated and given too much attention. The star of the play, which is currently being previewed, doesn’t believe that her character is particularly alluring or seductive.
Will Johansson’s second time on stage prove to be just as successful? Her previous performance earned her a prestigious Tony Award for portraying an innocent teenage character in Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge.
How thrilling! Just the other day, Scarlett was spotted outside the theatre signing autographs for her fans. She looked stylish as ever in a black hat.
