Even tho I knew the story, I had several problems with this production. One-I couldn't hear the words from the chorus. Two-the costumes were blah. Three-frankly, all it was was dancing around the stage. Good dancing, mind you, but mostly just dancing and tumbling. We were disappointed.

Being a director myself, the show did its job. It was entertaining and made people leave the theater smiling. That being said, only a small percentage of the actors were actually feline. The the rest were smiling and giggling on stage and looked like they were fooling around. Kerri as Grizabella was incredible, even though she seemed young she really captured the audience every moment she was on stage. Also we saw the understudy for rum tum tugger, and he did not disappoint at all. He was incredible, best tugger I’ve seen in ages, Zack Berger his name was, look out for him he’s a star. Mungo and rump were adorable, and the girl who played Victoria was really beautiful to watch. Those were the standouts for me. The show overall was fine. Truly lacked heart and magic.

TALENTED CAST - BUT WHY DO FOLKS LOVE CATS SO MUCH...??
1) The production value (sets, lighting, costumes, etc) was very good.
2) We were in the 10th row center. There were many times when I had no idea what the actors were saying/singing. And it wasn't just me. Others during intermission had the same complaint.
4) Performers were excellent! But one performer (Grizabella) played her role as one agonized cat. The actor's voice & acting were fantastic. But whether this was called for in the script or the director's instruction, it came off as awkward.
5) For me, the musical was hard to take. Some of the numbers were performed incredibly well ("Mungojerry & Rumpleteazer" "Mr. Mistofeleez" and the final chorus). But the other numbers were uninteresting and not memorable for me. I truly have no idea why "Cats" is so popular based on this production.
One last thing: A family of four (parents w/ their young kids) showed up 20 min late & ate popcorn f/ noisy bags & talked during the show. Theater is not the movies! Be considerate!

SECOND TIME VIEWER - DISAPPOINTED THE SECOND TIME
Saw it back in the 1980s, in Boston. It was magical, with a lot of vignettes that added energy and fun, but there were points that had me drifting away. Pollicle Dogs, I am looking at YOU.
Just saw it on tour at the Kennedy in 2019. It was ... less magical. Was the Jellicle Ball ALWAYS that long and boring? It seemed like the vignettes were cut, to make up for more of the never-worth-it plot, and the seemingly interminable ballet.
I felt bad for the dancers. They were working their hearts out to entertain me. Their director wasn't.
The lighting crew were the stars of the show. This is not a good thing.
Ultimately, I walked out during intermission. Life is too short to ensure the Pollicle Dogs a second time. I went home and pet my own cats. Much more satisfying.

I was disappointed in this Cats production, no real storyline, just the same type of dancing over and over. I saw Cats years ago it was much better.

NO PLOT, NOT WORTH $$$
The play itself was very well done. Great singing, dancing, sets, costume, production. However, I was bored most of the show... there was absolutely no story line, as I did not expect this with my lack of previous Cats knowledge, but I was really disappointed. Especially for $140 a ticket, you'd expect more than singing and dancing... I didn't know this was a ballet/opera :( Wish I knew this before purchasing the tickets!
