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.

We are huge "Sister Maripat" fans and have seen all of her "Late-Nite" productions (a couple more than once). The highlights of this new show were the same as the highlights of the others: her improv interactions with the audience (classroom) that showcase her incredibly quick wit. It was obvious last night that this is a new show--it was rough in parts and will need some time in order to be polished. It was too obvious that she was reading most of her material, parts of the prepared material were too long (especially the reading of the too-long "Easter Story" book). Just as when you go to see your "ol' favorite" musicians in concert and you want to make sure they include the old standards that made them famous, we want to see more of the original "Sister" schtick reprised. (E.g., what happened to Sister's correction of "students" who don't answer in complete sentences? or don't stand up when called on? or who arrive late? I couldn't believe that Sister said nothing to several late-arrivers....)
Please don't take this review as negative--it was still a wonderful night of entertainment. She got a standing ovation, and the LONG line who waited after the show to buy tickets to Maripat's new show, "Honey B." was a real tribute to the appreciation of this audience. Given her track record of success, this new show (after all we did see a preview) will only get better and better as it gets more polished.
