As much a cultural phenomenon as a theatrical event, Cats enjoyed a record-breaking run on Broadway and in London, thanks to its feline-inspired costumes, sets, dancing and memorable songs by famed composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story, inspired by a collection of poetry from T.S. Eliot, revolves around a tribe known as the Jellicle cats, and their leader Old Deuteronomy, who'll choose one of their group to be reborn that night after their annual ball. The longest-touring Broadway musical in history, Cats features 20 of Webber's timeless melodies, including the hit song "Memory," and was the winner of seven 1983 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

This is a tale of how an elderly woman in rural Georgia deals with changes in her family relationships and the family's collective relationship to the land on which they all grew up. That might make you think this has the potential to be a real yawner, but this show is anything but that. It's a powerful and poignant story, brought to life by some truly wonderful performances and the creative use of an incredible set. Like the rich and deep lives of its main characters, Foxfire is full of emotion, delivered with a surprising abundance of humor with the overall result an immensely entertaining work.
Cronyn and Cooper, both extremely successful artists in their own right, came together in 1980 to create Foxfire. Their first collaboration was intended to create a vehicle for Cronyn and then-wife Jessica Tandy to act together. The main source for this play came from The Foxfire Books, a compilation of magazine articles written by Georgian high school students in the 1960s about their grandparents’ homesteading generation in the Appalachian Mountains.
_Foxfire _was the starting point of a long friendship and playwrighting partnership for Cronyn and Cooper that, after Tandy died, eventually resulted in marriage for the pair.
