Who cares about bombs in Times Square? Last night, the theater district saw the star-studded premiere of the first all-black production of Tennessee William's classic Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, starring Phylicia Rashad, James Earl Jones, Dreamgirl Anika Noni Rose, and baby-wipe fan Terrence Howard. (The production got a somewhat tepid review by the NY Times' Ben Brantley.) The onstage star-wattage, however, was offset by the disappointing sartorial choices on the part of the red carpet attendees. Though the great Spike Lee and his wife Tonya, left, set the bar high, (and Eartha Kitt looks purrrfect no matter what) their fellow attendees fell terribly short, on the whole. The full Good, Bad, and Ugly of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, after the jump.
