I have been to 4 or 5 shows at the Raven. They are becoming a must see for my wife and me. The big stage with the elaborate setting is very refreshing - I'm tired of other theaters with two chairs, a table and your imagination being the set. ...continued

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.

As always the cast and crew at the Raven are spot on. The actors are nothing short of talented and give an amazing performance from start to finish of this classic tale. Bravo!

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.

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.

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.
