It's hard to believe that five years have passed since Lady Gaga recorded "Bad Romance." But with the fifth anniversary of the release date of Gaga's album, The Fame Monster, on October 26, 2014 it's interesting to note the song's impact on popular culture.

Broadway's Snarling New 'Cat': Scarlett Johansson

Liz Smith | Posted 04.03.2013 | Entertainment

Cat is a long play and the actress often rushes her lines and swallows Tennessee's dialogue. She is attractive, in and out of her slip, but hardly erotic. Strange, for a young woman so well-known for her allure.

It's an unusual Cat on a Hot Tin Roof when Big Daddy is the one standout. Tennessee Williams' bourbon-soaked drama about family, homosexuality and mendacity is powerful, but this Cat has been declawed.

I've never seen a good production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, so maybe it is the play itself. But it is intriguingly modern in some ways.
