I knew nothing of CATS and bought tickets on a lark for my mom for Christmas. I was advised “there is not plot, just enjoy” and I guess that was helpful! Amazing dancing and chorus engagement in their movements and vocals - the stars were extremely well cast. It was fun and funny with cats creeping through the crowd in parts. And there is a plot actually! It is just extremely simple and sweet, clearly not the point of the show. If you want to just be entertained with an excellent live orchestra, world class dancers and singers in costumes that help you suspend reality, this is your show.

I've seen many productions of Cats (unfortunately the recent movie, I know...) Was a pleasure to see phenomenal dancing, singing and very energetic cast. Live theater at it's best. BRAVO to all involved with this production! 😺

Having loved the 80's CATS show I excitedly brought my whole family to this one. My husband did not really enjoy it nor did my mom, my daughter (13) said it was hard to follow and she was not really sure of the story. Overall, it was a really nice day. The costumes and lighting were great, I liked the characters and the performers were well cast. I question some of the directors choices - the long lulls and such. It just was not as dynamic as I remember at all, but the cast did a great job and I had a nice day. Memories is still very beautiful and the performer did a great job of it. She has an exceptional voice and it still brings me to tears. I have to say I have preferred other shows this year and I expected this to be my favorite.

The play was outstanding, awesome and definitely would recommend to my friends. The Dragonfish is an excellent restaurant that is super close. My only criticism of the show on Friday nite would be the political insult at the encore with regard to an orange cat wandering around trying to build a wall. I grow so weary of the constant undermining of our government when you must realize that over 50% of America voted for our current president. Keep it away from which would have been a most enjoyable evening, the reason I subtracted ONE star from this review.

I’d never seen Cats staged and (ahem, embarrassing) did not realize it was from T.S. Eliot. This ignorance aside, I was puzzled during the first number, Jellicle Cats. During the break I checked out Eliot’s poem, and some info about the play itself. Was much more involved during the second half. Had I prepared beforehand , the poor acoustics that muffles lots of the group singing would not have been such a bother. The talent was unmistakeable, however, and Grizabella’s solo, Memory, was thrilling. What I did not care for was the overly dark set and skimpy lighting. The battery pack enhanced costumes in the second act were a bit alarming and way too Las Vegas. I’d love to see the production again, and the next time be prepared.
