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.

As much as I like Caroline Aaron from so many scene-stealing film performances, this production is fairly average.
I agree with a fellow reviewer about the direction...it seems almost absent at times.
Because Busch has written a terrifically fun and funny script, and the actors, for the most part, are old pros, I wasn't bored and laughed a good deal, but there was a LOT more potential in this endeavour than was realized here.
Miss Aaron said they had twelve days rehearsal, and it shows. Her work is good and solid and because she's so talented, she creates a full and likeable character, but I have the sense that with a stronger director, she could have knocked this out of the ballpark.
Since I missed the Broadway production, and love the legendary work of Mr. Busch, I'm still glad I made the trip from LA.
Written by Charles Busch

An award-winning hit at the Manhattan Theatre Club and on Broadway, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife is a must-see comedy! Caroline Aaron stars as Marjorie Taub, the wife of a philanthropic allergist, who is engulfed in a life crisis of Medea like proportions. Her children are grown, her beloved therapist died recently and her mother grates on her nerves. She tries to lose herself in a world of art-galleries, foreign films and avant-garde theatre, but finds she is barely able to rouse herself from her sofa. Marjorie's spirits suddenly soar when Lee Green (Marilu Henner recreating her Broadway role) appears on her doorstep and turns her world upside down.
