I have seen several plays at Raven Theatre and this was by far the best. The acting was superb as was the set and costumes. It brought to life the characters of Maggie the Cat and Big Daddy. Completely believable. Great performance.

Excellent production with powerhouse performances. Especially noteworthy were the actors portraying Big Daddy, Big Mama and Brick. This play also had wonderful production values - great set, lighting and props.

A terrific production of one of the greatest American plays. A dynamite cast brings out the poetry and venom of Williams' classic drama.

It was our first time at the Raven Theatre and we really liked the venue and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The actors were top notch. Also, the set was really interesting. We will definitely go back again.

I've never been to Raven before but if this is representative of the caliber of productions they offer I say congrats to Chicago for having Raven available.
