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.

The actors and actresses were all talented, I got into the story, and some parts were very funny. Everyone in my group enjoy the play- we plan to go again. The theater was small and cozy, and under the moon with fresh air- it was an evening well spent

The Bard’s treatise on Mercy and Justice. Themes of humanity, dignity, revenge, cruelty, and greed are all explored in the character of Shylock, one of Shakespeare’s most tragic figures. Placed within the structure of a romantic comedy against the background of Medieval Venice, this is both Shylock’s story, and a conflict of two fundamental religious ideologies.
