Sadly and surprisingly the audio quality of the performance was so, so poor none of us 4 could understand anything. We walked out at intermission and saw quite a few others do so too. And we had seats in the orchestra section center left.

2nd time watch. I luckily got centre 6th row seats where I can fullly enjoy the performance.
Leaving only negative things due to the limitation of the number of characters, the performers didn't seem fully prepared. Comparing to what I experienced before, the performers were just humans dressed up with cat costumes. I wasn't convinced from them that I was watching real cats. When cats are not playing as main characters at each number, they should remain as cats surrounding the main cats in centre, but they didn't seem. Memory, one of the main numbers of Cats were dissapointing. It wasn't even as much thrilling as when I watch the old version on Youtube. Most performance gave me a feeling that the actors and actresses were trying not to make a mistake rather than acting. Many performances let me feel nervous if they do mistakes. Even I noticed some forgot lyrics, shaking legs with balle, 'squicking' dance. I can say only a few of them are fully prepared for the performance this time.

If you like musicals just to hear music, then you will enjoy the show. This had absolutely no story line and besides "memories, no music that I enjoyed. If you want to see humans jumping around like cats and don't mind that there is no beginning, middle, and end to a show, then by all means go see it. I would have rather spent my time and gone to get my teeth cleaned. 3 hours of my life that I will never get back.

DISJOINTED, AWKWARD, UNFUN, TERRIBLE WASTE OF TALENT
The show has no storyline, no character development, one set change, One awkward moment after another. The audience did not like it although we certainly tried to engage. The performers play to the back of the stage not outwardly towards the audience. Perhaps it’s an attempt to capture the aloofness of cat behavior? Whatever – after 45 minutes of it, let alone three hours, who cares? The performers except for one razzle dazzle extraordinary dancer, lost track of the fact… Hello there’s an audience out here! And then when they did TRY to engage with the audience, it fell flat. The musical compositions were bizarre – not lyrical, not enjoyable. And anti-climactic - always dwindling out like an ‘oh never mind’ moment. Just super disappointing. It’s like this show is a great starting point ... now they need a director to get in there and create texture and dynamic and some semblance of story. I feel sad for the performers - to have their talents and time so wasted.

THE WORST BROADWAY SHOW.... POSSIBLY EVER.
The actors are talented singers and dancers, but this is a terrible show. I'm not sure how you review that script and say, 'yeah, I want to hop around like a cat for a couple hours'... just a terrible, terrible, boring show. I cannot understand what all the excitement is about. This is not the fault of the actors, they didn't write the show. I'm sure that given the opportunity in other productions they are all fine actors. But this performance is terrible and not worth the time or the ticket price. Do yourself a favor and see a show with an actual story line, plot and character development. This is nothing more than singing and dancing and spectacle making with no substance what so ever. I'm not sure what I expected, but this wasn't it.

Watching Cats was a painful experience. No plot. No acting. One good song (that was repeated 3 times). Good dancing, but if that's what you are looking for go see a dance show.

EVEN IF IT WERE FREE IT WOULDN’T BE WORTH MY TIME
I have never even walked out of a movie theater after spending $10 because I’m pretty frugal and I gladly left my $100 seat behind during the intermission of Cats. Not only does this show have no plot, there’s no dialogue, nothing ever happened. It’s one number of singing and dances after another.
Perhaps if I was closer I could at least appreciate the costumes and makeup ($100 got me a seat halfway up the balcony off to the side) but there are so many things I’d rather do with my time.
Literally the only takeaway I had is that Jellicle cats meet once a year. What’s a Jellicle cat? Good question.
I feel like this is a show that people say they like because it’s cool to like it?
It’s just not good.
