First time to see Cats and didn't like it. Production was excellent, performers great, costumes fantastic but too many forgettable songs and too much dead time.

Great music; great singing and dancing. I am not a "cat person" and didn't really "get it".

We were really pleased to be able to take our children to see Cats. They loved it, especially the magic. We kind of missed all the cat behavior we remembered from our previous performances. I know that became the butt of a few jokes but for those...continued

The second half of the show is stronger than the first half. The singing and dancing are super. I wish there was more of a storyline to the musical, but it is a tour de force of dancing and singing with a creative set design and costumes. I...continued

This performance of CATS was a ton of fun and Hugely enjoyable! The cast was talented and energetic. The dancing and singing was top notch and exciting to watch. I am glad that I made the effort to attend this performance!

A super, high-energy, superbly danced version of a now musical "legend". I was glad to be able to share my "memories" of seeing the original production at the Winter Garden with my children.

I had seen CATS in the early 80s and this show lived up to my memories (lol). The dancing was exceptional and the beat was electric. My complaints were that the lyrics were very difficult to understand. In addition, we had a crew of people who...continued

It was a fun blast to the 1980's classic. No real contemporary spin has been put on it and I had forgotten just how 80-esque it was until the synthesizer chimed in to the orchestra. Well executed though with a tallented cast and good set. If this...continued

It was interesting to watch and the music was wonderful. Some of the theatrical effects were a little over-done for my taste.

Loved the show. I am so blessed to have your discounts to be able to share with my grandchildren. I want to have them enjoy theater and can't afford regular prices. The seats were fantastic and the service at the box office was excellent. Gave...continued

I'm not a big musical fan so I knew I wouldn't be thrilled but my wife is and she leaned over to me after five minutes and said, "Boring." That about sums it up.

This play is seriously dated. I was disappointed to find that the costumes and choreography are stuck in the 80's with the music. It doesn't hold up as a timeless musical. In addition, aside from 3-4 stand outs (especially Grizabella), the dancers...continued

We were bored out of our minds with both the lack of story line in the material (a cat tap dances with cockroaches... WHY?!) and the lack of enthusiasm in the performance (especially the music). One of us nodded off several times in Act I, and she...continued

Having seen this show in other locations in the states, I looked forward to this performance. Great energy, cast was wonderful, lighting and use of the staging were great. Too fun.

Oh my, this was so disappointing. I guess I was really mistaken as to what it would be like. It was extremely slow and dull. I could barely wait for intermission to skip out!
