Based on the T.S. Eliot poetry
collection Old Possum's Book of Practical
Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS is
the longest continuously running musical in Broadway history. Set in an enormous junkyard, CATS follows dialogue threads between
the frolicking felines and their respective tales. Incorporating a multitude of
musical genres and astounding acrobatics, Webber has created a masterpiece
purrfect for the entire family!
In town for four days only, this
CATS-Eye production is the lone version sanctioned by A.L. Webber himself.
Utilizing marvelous makeup and opulent costumes, CATS is a visually enthralling piece and
an excellent introduction into the world of live theatre! Straight from the
mind of Webber, you too can play the role of mouse in this invigorating chase
through the thoughts and feelings of felines. Kids and adults alike will giggle
at the preening, finicky Rum Tum Tugger and squeal with delight for the Magical
Mister Mistoffelees. Everyone can learn a lesson from the cats' treatment of
the saddened Grizabella, while Victoria reminds us all how far a
little kindness goes.
