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!

pleasant and entertaining

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. ... Read more

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
