Why see Cats?

Come one, come all!

After an exciting revival on Broadway in 2016 - the first since its marathon 18-year run - Cats is heading out on tour, bringing the feline frolics to a town near you! A production full of musical theatre classics, instantly recognizable costumes, and choreography and bursting with cat-itude, this iconic show is purrfect for newcomers and old-timers.

Created by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh in 1981, Cats is based on poet T.S Elliot's 1939 anthology, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, a guide to all kinds of cats from the streetwise stray to the pampered lap cat. This revival retains direction from Trevor Nunn and revised choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler after Gillian Lyne.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Once a year, a local tribe of street cats, all with their own distinct names and personalities, come together for the legendary "Jellicle Ball". Here they entertain each other, tell stories, and listen to wisdom given by their elderly and respected leader, Old Deuteronomy. A Broadway classic, Cats doesn't follow your usual musical theatre plot, instead, it's a dazzlingly choreographed jamboree that gives us the inside scoop on the real lives of our feline friends!

Broadway Worthy!

I saw Cats at the Peace Center in Greenville last night. It was remarkable in all respects. Rum Tum Tugger (Hank Santos) stole the show, but there were other thieves on stage as well. Grizabella sang the showstopping "Memories" with a beauty I can only compare to the performance I saw on Broadway by Betty Buckley. The Dance Team was a standout, and Old Deuteronomy and Gus , as good as can be. I have seen this musical on stage and in the theater, but this performance was worth the price of a ticket. If you are anywhere near this national touring company version do yourself a favor and see the show. I thought I had seen Cats before, but in Greenville last night I saw it again for the very first time. ... Read more

Cats Attack

I saw CATS at Blaisdale in the 80s. Loved the show. I have seen it since. On June 14 I have to say the dancing was superb. The effects were magical. However, all 4 of us agreed the sound was way too loud. From the 1st number the orchestra was at 10. Where would the singing go? Trying to amplify over the music distorted the lyrics to where they could not be understood. Having opera singers adds amazing range but again the music was so loud it was even more difficult to hear the lyrics. Please consider turning the amplitude down When a show starts 1st number at volume 10...there is no place to go up. This a fantastic show with very talented actors, singers and dancers. This production proved the old adage if the sound and light crew are doing their best job...no one notices them. As for seats, be careful. 2 of our group had row P tickets. They were on the floor. Then buying on line L tickets were in the balcony. With theater smoke view was obscured. This is a great show. I hope they back off the volume and it would be a much better show. ... Read more
