Winner of 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score and Book; Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical; Olivier Award for Best Musical and the Evening Standard Award for Best Musical, FCLO is pleased to bring “Cats” starring Mari Gutzi as Grizabella from the National Tour and two performers from the Broadway show to Plummer Auditorium. Based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, a collection of poems by T.S. Eliot, Cats revolves around the antics of such feline characters as Old Deuteronomy, Jennyanydots, Mr. Mistoffelees, Rum Tum Tugger, Skimbleshanks, Griddlebone, and Grizabella who sings the hit song “Memory.”
Originally produced at the New London Theatre on May 11, 1981, Cats began its New York run at the Winter Garden Theatre on October 7, 1982. The production featured Betty Buckley (Grizabella), and like the London production which preceded it, the New York version of Cats dazzled audiences with its imaginative spectacle and story-telling flare. Twenty-five years since it’s West End debut, Cats continues to delight audiences throughout the world.
Hailed by critics as “Purrfection..one of the most imaginative musicals of the century!”, “Heartstopping entertainment.. it is that rarity that appeals to adults and children” and “A triumphant piece of musical theater..among the most exhilarating and innovative musicals ever staged.
