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.

I have attended many HD operas direct from the Metropolitan in NY on a big screen, therefore, I was delighted to see the National Theater Live from London on the big screen at the La Mirada Theater. The performance was mesmerizing and the audience attentive and quiet. No charge for parking. Courteous staff in spite of what George Rametta wrote about the ushers not caring where one was seated. The tickets that were sent to the theater from Goldstar, where George bought his ticket, are assigned seats by the personnel, therefore, ushers seat the patron to his assigned seat. If patrons want a particular seat, they will have to contact the box office and pay full price and pick out the seat preferred. I have been a hard-working, dedicated volunteer for several years and I know we do care about our patrons and are proud of our beautiful theater.

“Outstanding acting, direction and set design bring a classic tragedy powerfully to life.” —Sunday Times
“When Dominic Cooper and Helen Mirren appear onstage together…the moment is electric.” —Evening Standard
This is a high-definition cinema presentation projected on a large screen with high quality audio in a Performing Arts Center.
Helen Mirren plays the title role Nicholas Hytner’s highly acclaimed production of _Phedre _by Jean Racine, in a version by Ted Hughes, with a cast also led by Dominic Cooper and Margaret Tyzack. Consumed by an uncontrollable passion for her young stepson and believing Theseus, her absent husband, to be dead, Phèdre confesses her darkest desires and enters the world of nightmare. When Theseus returns alive and well, Phèdre fearing exposure, accuses her stepson of rape. The result is carnage.
