BORING, REPETITIVE, NO PLOT OR STORY LINE, HIGHLY OVERRATED
I see a lot of theatre and I rarely think about abandoning ship at intermission, but that's what I kept thinking. It was painful to sit through this 2.5 hour play. It felt like a disconnect between the audience and what was happening on stage. First half of the play had unmemorable music, seemed disjointed, no plot and no character development. Second half things picked up, but it was repetitive. The song Memory was probably the saving grace, but it comes out of the blue and in the absence of a storyline, it's just a song where you can't really connect it with anything. The song or versions of it also repeat a few times, which makes the play repetitive. I'm surprised this play has been around this long. They had opportunities to make it a lot better than it is. Disappointing for me and my guests. Also for those who pay attention, there's a derogatory line in one of the songs that is off putting.

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE :(
Knowing my friend also had tickets days after, I honestly felt bad for them. It was painful to make it to the first intermission so we could leave. No plot, no live music.... just some actors dressed up as cats dancing around singing terrible songs. I was completed shocked and in wonder how this show has been playing for so long.

STORY IS POORLY TOLD AND DISJOINTED.
Watched the show in Dec 2019 in Toronto. The story is poorly told and the scenes are awkwardly stitched together. The cast was talented enough and I could appreciate the singing and dancing but have a hard time recommending this show.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
Boring show with awkwardly put together scenes.

I expected this performance to be amazing, I was so excited. Sadly , it was so boring , could not understand the story line, repetitive songs, costumes on some looked more like mice than cats, scene was the same throughout the whole performance . The group of four I was with all agreed the performance was terrible, don’t waste your time or money

CERTAINLY NOT WORTH THE MONEY
After spending $135 for a ticket I thought this was the worst performance I have even seen at the Benedum, the orchestra did not even play and you could not understand anything they were singing. The costumes were beautiful and the dancing was okay but there was no plot that we could figure out. We actually left at intermission which I have never done and there were others doing the same and sharing our sentiments. These tickets were a Christmas gift, I am so bummed the show was not at all what we expected.

No story, horrible repetitive cat/head moves, could sometime not hear the lyrics/words, one of them should be in porn instead of a musical, the lead signer has an amazing voice I can give her that much but cannot act, costumes are awful and I really didn’t want a grown man dressed like a cat purring in my ear in the isle beside me...not what I was expecting at all but to each their own, I respect the opinion and taste of others, just sharing my view of the show...do try and make the best of a nice evening out though.
