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.

A funny play that also had its touching and serious moments. It seemed like we were peering into the actual living room for this slice of life. There is quite a bit of comedy and some plot twists to remind you that you were watching something that was written to entertain as well as to provide insight into the challenges of Jewish grandparents on the East Coast trying to adopt their distant grandson from California.
It is suitable for people of all ages, and I'd recommend that families watch it together, as many of the themes are familiar people of all ages.

After losing his parents, Jesús goes to live with his estranged grandparents – the Weismans. Two different cultures – and not just because he’s Hispanic and they’re Jewish!
A hysterical comedy with a great deal of heart, join the Weismans as they begin a new chapter in their life. Along with wacky neighbors, insane social workers and a seemingly impossible situation, Jesús and the Weismans is sure to leave audiences with a smile on their face and a warmth in their heart.
