Description

The international family smash hit from Russia–-the only entertainment of its kind in the world–-features nonstop action by a group of talented felines performing original and astounding acrobatic feats, integrated into a nonverbal, colorful and fun-filled family show.

Moscow Cats Theatre made its United States debut almost a year ago in New York City. Embraced by critics and fans alike the production has been featured on “Good Morning America,” “Good Day,” “CBS Early Show,” “Inside Edition,” “The Montel Williams Show” and “Live with Regis and Kelly”—and the critics have raved!

With sold-out performances in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago and many other cities, Moscow Cats Theatre wowed the public and received accolades from across the U.S.  “The cats are the stars of the show–-they walk tightropes, balance balls, jump from great heights and unerringly negotiate complex mazes,” says Mark Gelfman, the executive producer of the show. “We glorify them and that’s why we provide the cats with a traveling entourage, including a vet, kitty caretaker and personal stylist to tend to the needs of our feline superstars.”

The cast includes 35 cats, one dog and five clowns, performed by Vladimir Krasnolozhkin, Vladimir Anisimov, Maria Anisimova, Elizaveta Krasnolozhkina and Elena Krasnolozhkina.
