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.

Quotes & Highlights
“Encompasses idealism, compromise and illusion in an all too real world of mass manipulation.” New York Times
“Acidly funny.” New York Magazine
“A fast-paced, often uproarious comedy.” New York Daily News
The satiric play Tabletop is a frenzied comedy that takes place in the pressure-cooker environment of an advertising company specializing in high-end tabletop imagery. Egomaniacal artists, an autocratic director, demanding clients, second-guessing technicians and naive wannabes populate this insular enclave of fabulous fakery.
“For me, this is a play about pain, but people always seem to find it funny, which confuses me. If you ever had a bad boss, this show is cheap therapy,” says playwright Rob Ackerman, whose years working as a “tabletop” technician in advertising inspired him to write the play.
