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.

Glenn Kelman's "Whenever the Twain Shall Meet" is a hit. "Whenever" captured Twain's personality so well that I will be reading Twain's short stories soon thanks to this performance starting with the seven presented in the play.
"Whenever" builds and gets better and better climaxing at the Epilogue. I especially enjoyed "Canabalism in the Cars".
Jerry Michnal was superb. His Mr. Van Nostrand is sure to please. Ty Pederson and Nathan Gebhard were great as Alonzo and Burley respectively.
The rest of the cast was stellar
I laughed at the humor and found the irony sobering and provacative.
All in all a wonderful night at the Gallery Theatre. Mahalo.

This adaptation of a handful of Mark Twain's short stories was for the most part well performed and well staged. Acted out in a series of vignettes, this would probably be more engaging and enjoyable if you're familiar with the original stories.
On November 30, 1835, the small town of Florida, Missouri witnessed the birth of its most famous son. Samuel Langhorne Clemens was welcomed into the world as the sixth child of John Marshall and Jane Lampton Clemens. John and Jane could hardly know that their son Samuel would one day be known as Mark Twain — America’s most famous literary icon.
Twain began to gain fame when his story “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calavaras County” appeared in the New York Saturday Press on November 18, 1865.
Twain’s first book, The Innocents Abroad, was published in 1869, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 1876, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in 1885. He wrote a total of 28 books as well as numerous short stories, letters and sketches.
